Just who’s status is being raised?
The GSCC is holding a conference on 14th October with the title of Social work: a profession to be proud of. At a mere £170 plus VAT it is well within the reach of all proud social workers.
A number of high-profile speakers will make contributions about developments in social work and debate how to improve the status, representation and media portrayal of the profession. These include Andrew Webb, Vice Chair of the Social Work Task Force, Tracy McVeigh, Senior Correspondent for The Observer, Deirdre Saunders, The Sun’s agony aunt and member of the Social Work Task Force, and Hilton Dawson, BASW Chief Executive.
A pity only one of the high-profile speakers mentioned is an actual social worker
