Social Work: Events


Social Work Seminar Series

Social Work has a lively programme of seminars which are free and open to all, and which can be used by practitioners to demonstrate that they have met their CPD and Post-Qualifying Registration Training and Learning (PRTL) obligations.

The seminars cover a range of interesting topics which are of interest to social work students and practitioners from all areas of practice. We look forward to welcoming you at some or all of our seminars.
