Social Work Ambassadors are being recruited to raise the profile of the social work profession and the valuable role of the social worker within our communities and wider society. When ambassadors are recruited, they are required to  participate in Ambassador Training provided by the NISCC. The training covers;

1. What is the role of a Social Work Ambassador?
2. Who are Social Work Ambassadors?
3. How the scheme works?
4. Who benefits and how?
5. How the scheme links to PiP?
6. Ambassador knowledge and value base.
7. Planning your own skills development and presenting?

During the session we would like to give you the opportunity to practise your ambassador skills and we would ask you to prepare some thoughts in preparation for the training. At the training you will be asked to give a short (3-5 min) presentation and you can select to present on Question 1 or 2 listed below (this can be delivered orally).

1. Why you feel you would make a good ambassador?
2. What would you say to encourage people into a social work career? 

At the recent launch  Christine Smyth Director of SW Strategy, DoH spoke very positively and enthusiastically about the Ambassador Scheme “It is a fantastic scheme, which will support our ambition to raise the profile of social work, get the right people in, show co-production in action and also develop the profession for the future”.

If you are unable to join us on the 3 May and are interested in becoming an Ambassador please contact for information on future events.
