The Social Work Toolkit is an online toolkit of resources designed to help your students develop the knowledge, core skills and confidence to succeed on their course and placements.

Our range of resources, including quick guides, videos, case studies, book chapters and expert opinion articles, are available on or off campus. Learning objectives, reflective questions, links to policy and law, and further resource suggestions all help students to critically engage with the subject, and build on their knowledge.

The content is divided into five themes, linked to the modules on a typical Social Work course. All resources are benchmarked to the Professional Capabilities Framework and other standards.
