Description

The social work profession is in a state of flux and it is now more important than ever that social workers take responsibility for their own professional development needs.

Fully updated to reflect the current social work landscape, including the Knowledge and Skills statements, Evidencing CPD provides a comprehensive guide to support social workers to create and develop their own portfolio and focus on critical reflection as a learning tool for CPD activities. By developing a professional portfolio all the elements of the changing environment can be brought into a single place so that individual practice lies at the heart of service improvement.  This book helps social workers to work through the process, providing hints, tips and guidance on constructing a portfolio in line with the PCF. It also helps guide critical reflection so they can learn from their own practice.

This best-selling publication is packed with examples and exercises to support personal portfolio development and is mapped to the different levels of social work progression.
