Yesterday, our 2018 Cohort started their journeys to becoming social workers. After their first day of teaching, 340 participants were officially welcomed onto the programme at the opening ceremony by our CEO Josh MacAlister, who was joined by guest speaker and Frontline Patron, Andrew Adonis. Participants then enjoyed a performance by award-winning poet, playwright and performer, Louise Wallwein MBE.
The Summer Institute opening ceremony marks the start of the intensive five-week residential training programme, where participants will be taught the knowledge and skills of great social work by leading academics.
From next week we will be sharing blogs from the Summer Institute, which you will be able to read here. Make sure you check back to stay up-to-date with what’s happening at this year’s Summer Institute.
