STUDENT COMPETITION 2017/18 Social Work Education
SOCIAL WORK STUDENT ACTIVISM COMPETITON
Social Work Education: The International Journal publishes articles of a critical and reflective nature concerned with the theory and practice of social care and social work education at all levels. It presents a forum for international debate on important issues and provides an opportunity for the expression of new ideas and proposals on the structure and content of social care and social work education, training and development. In this way, the journal makes a vital contribution to the development of educational theory and practice in relation to social work and social care, promoting a set of standards in relation to the written presentation of ideas and experience which reflects the needs and requirements of both practice and education.
First Prize: £500
(Plus cash prizes of £100 for up to five runners-up)
Following a successful launch last year, Social Work Education: The International Journal is delighted to be able to run the student competition again in 2017/2018. We invite entries from groups of or individual social work/social care/social welfare students from across the globe who are involved in practical, advocacy and/or campaigning projects with their local communities or in support of vulnerable groups. These projects should promote social justice, challenge stereotypes and make an impact on the lives of both the people that they seek to support, and on students’ understanding of themselves and of the role of social work in the 21st century. Entries should report and/or promote these projects, and make reference to the part played by social work/social care students.
