Try out your social work skills online

Do you think you could be a social worker? An online game, Social Work Challenge, invites players to take on the role of a social worker who is faced with a series of decisions relating to a child protection case.

The challenge is designed to help people understand the difficult decisions that social workers have to make. People are encouraged to take the challenge to get a glimpse of the working life of this challenging but rewarding profession.

Director of Social Work, Andrew Lowe, said: “Social work – especially child protection – is often seen as mysterious. This challenge, which has been published by the Association of Directors of Social Work, is a really useful window on the complexity of social work decision making.”
