There are always interesting activities taking place at Kingston and exciting opportunities to take advantage of. Here are some examples of what you could be involved with if you study this course.
Social work conference
We host an annual social work research conference, which:
- features distinguished keynote speakers;
- showcases recently completed or on-going research in the University;
- gives staff and masters students the chance to disseminate their research through seminar presentations; and
- attracts an audience of practitioners and academics.
Our next social work conference will take place on Wednesday 9 April 2014.
Social work seminars
We also run a series of seminars, running either every month or every other month at the Kingston Hill campus. They include a distinguished keynote speaker and a presentation. The seminars are free and open to:
- all staff in local social services organisations in the statutory, voluntary and private sector; and
- service users, carers and their organisations that assist with the social work education programmes at the University.
Recent speakers have included:
- Sue Berelowitz, Deputy Children's Commissioner for England: "The Challenge of Child Sexual Exploitation"
- Professor Nicky Stanley, Professor of Social Work, University of Central Lancashire: "Social Work Practices: What we know from the National Research"
- Dr Beth Neil, Director of Social Work Research, University of East Anglia: "Lessons from a Longitudinal Study of the Outcomes from Contact in Adoption"
