Title: From Student to Practitioner: Race, Racism and Social Work. Phase 2

Initial findings from the first CMSWTP funded research project: From Student to Practitioner: Race, Racism and Social Work, indicated that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and practitioners had a positive experience of coming together in a safe space to discuss issues important to them regarding their lived experience and perspectives of race and racism within social work.

This NIHR funded continuation project aims:

  • To provide professional development opportunities for BAME students and practitioners

Project objectives are:

  • To provide 3 networking facilitated discussion forums where safe conversations can take place
  • To discuss and develop thinking around Anti-Racist practice
  • To evaluate the experiences of participation in the 3 events
  • To write up and disseminate outcomes from Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the research
