Social worker exchange programme

SOCIAL WORKER EXCHANGE PROGRAMME

  • The relationship between Skills for Care in England and the HWSETA dates back to 2005. In 2008, the two organisations signed a Framework Agreement for a Joint Working Relationship.

  • The purpose of this programme was to identify and link professional social workers and representative stakeholder Councils and Associations into an international action learning forum that will compare, contrast and develop best practice models of social work delivery and practices in both England and South Africa. Furthermore, the findings from these exposures are to inform skills development strategies in both the Workplace and Educational Institutions within each country.

  • On 26 February 2011 it was the turn of the South African Social Work Professionals to experience life at the coalface in heavily industrialized cities and towns in Lancashire, Stockport, Wigan and Salford, England.

Challenges

Challenges

  • Non-Participation of Departments of Social Development in skills development.

  • Non registration of learners on learnerships who are funded by the Expanded Public Works Programme

  • Lack of understanding in Public Sector on Learnership Implementation – case in point NC. DOSD – Housing Profile Project – 110 learners trained on skills programme instead of a learnership

  • Corruption amongst training providers in the sector

  • Poor quality of training, lack of implementation of the practical training component.


Solutions

SOLUTIONS

  • National Department of Social Development will convene a workshop with ALL Provincial Departments where HWSETA will workshop them on participation

  • HWSETA will once again inform EPWP Coordinators of the requirements for registering learners on a learnership

  • We will induct employers on the learning programme implementation before the implementation commences.

  • HWSETA has implemented a process to de-accredit corrupt Training Providers

  • HWSETA will raise the standard for approving a provider to be accredited as well as intensify the monitoring of quality delivery of education and training by our accredited providers.
