What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This has come at the right time, degree programs are changing and the introduction of PCF's rather that National occupational standards needs to be discussed and put into an accessible format for students on social work degree programs. This book focuses on the students practice learning opportunities and incorporated activities and reflection and has been written to benefit both the student and practitioner (PE's/lecturers)' – Von Kelso, University of Hull

'The book is a good starting point for the preparation for practice, building on skills development for the final year and as a newly qualified worker. Reference to the PCF will be helpful for students to begin to use the criteria in a meaningful way.' – Lesley Parish, North East Worcestershire College
