DEADLINE: 29th January 2021
You are being invited to take part in a survey that is part of the International Federation of Social Workers (European Region) project titled “A social Europe is possible! The new generation of social workers are the spearhead of change!”. This project is being led by Omar Mohamed and Siobhan Maclean as co-directors, and a group of “young social workers” representing around 15 countries across Europe.
The participants of this survey will be the “young” generation of social workers with experience of the transition from education to employment, for the purposes of this survey, “young social worker” means:
A newly qualified social worker and in their first 3 years of employment
The survey will take around 10-15 minutes to complete. You can stop taking the survey at any point by clicking off this webpage.
Choose your language You click this box which you can find at the top right of the survey, and then you scroll down the drop-down list and click your desired language and the survey will translate itself. You can respond in any language you choose, rather than English, if you wish.
The aim of this survey is to collect data around the experience of the transition from education to employment for “young social workers” across Europe. We will use the key themes, ideas and topics from this survey to give us an idea of some questions to ask final year students and social workers in their first 5 years of practice and have conversations with them about this transition.
The data collected from this survey and the conversations that will happen with this survey will be used to inform and help us write a policy statement. This policy statement will be on the transition from education to employment, exploring and highlighting the good practice of helping young social workers in this transition for employers to read and use across Europe. This policy statement will be published later this year, and will be published through the International Federation of Social Workers (European Region) website (https://www.ifsw.org/regions/europe/).
This survey will be anonymous, and we will not collect your name, or email address, unless you give us your email address in the final question for us to arrange a conversation with you.
