We are part of the South East London Teaching Partnership (SELTP) and are working with Goldsmiths, University of London, to improve the teaching of social work and improve the standards of qualified practitioners in the south-east London area.
The teaching partnership aims to drive up standards and understanding for front-line social workers and academics researching the area.
Social workers at Lewisham Council can apply for many courses and post-qualifying courses at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Social workers can also enjoy free continuous professional development opportunities, designed by social work practitioners and academics, to improve standards in social work education.
