Shaping the future: Participant 2017

Shaping the Future is a conference for final year social work students and newly qualified social workers to be held at Robert Gordon University Aberdeen on 5 May 2017.

The conference will examine:

  • what it is like to transition from University into the world of work as a Newly Qualified Social Worker
  • how to develop as an effective professional in a world that is ever changing
  • how to negotiate the new, the old, the emotions, the learning, the stress, the opportunities and still make a difference.

Participants should be more informed about tools and resources to support them and more empowered as a frontline professional.
