Final project report

Description

Final report from the "Prepared for practice?" project.
This project explores how effective the Social work degree has been in enabling graduates to feel prepared for the practice of social work. Graduates perceived they were more confident. They identified ways that this confidence (including in ICT and IL skills) has contributed to their preparedness for practice and their willingness to shape and challenge practices. They felt least prepared for working with hostile service users.
