We will also have webinars covering ANZASW Practice Standard 3 & Core Competency 2: Competence to practise social work with different ethnic and cultural groups in Aotearoa New Zealand.

If all goes well, Anne hopes to have at least one webinar covering each of the 10 SWRB core competencies. If her planning goes really well, there will be more than one webinar for each core competency!!

As there will be so many webinars for you to participate in and if you want to attend multiple webinars during a day or during the week, Anne suggests that you apply to your employer for study leave during this time. This will mean that your time is ring-fenced and you will definitely be able to participate in the webinars.

This is very cheap CPD for your employers!!!
