Last chance to sign up for the practice week hosted by Coventry City Council

Taking place from 2nd-6th November, Coventry City Council’s Practice Week 2020 brings a wide range of learning and development opportunities for all social workers, no matter where they work.

Although the Coronavirus pandemic has delayed and changed the shape of Practice Week this year, there is still a great range of regional, national and international speakers with a wealth of research and practice knowledge supporting the event.

The fantastic line-up is complemented by Coventry’s own practitioners and managers from across Help and Protection, Looked-After Children, Permanency and Fostering Services, Adult Disability Services, Shared Lives, sharing learning and practice expertise.

Practice Week will be run virtually this year, using both Microsoft Teams and Zoom to run interactive sessions over the week to ensure a safe and informative learning environment.

Places will be in high demand for the workshops and attendees are encouraged to book their places as soon as practically possible.

Lee Pardy-McLaughlin, Principal Social Worker, Children's and Andrew Errington, Principal Social Worker, Adults, said: “We are proud of the work that our Practitioners do in Coventry and the difference that they make.

“It is a great pleasure to welcome a range of leading academics and speakers to Coventry to share their experience and support us in our improvement journey.”
