An introduction to social work in Wales
You will be introduced to features of the Welsh context that will develop your understanding of what it means to be an effective practitioner in Wales. As you study, you will develop an understanding of devolution and the impact of this on legislation, policy, and ultimately on social work practice in Wales. You will also consider some important aspects of language need and language choice. You will be introduced to some of the roles and tasks undertaken by practitioners, how these are informed by legislation and social policy, and how they are underpinned by the codes of practice and the professional value base.
