Upcoming Lunchtime Seminar Dates for 2024

03 January 2024

Following the continuing success of the Lunchtime Seminar Series, the Social Care Council has released the first two dates for seminars in 2024.

Seminars are presented through Zoom so social workers and social care workers across Northern Ireland can attend virtually and not miss out. Each one has a particular focus covering anything from physical health to mental health to best practise. 

The aim is to help social workers, social work students and social care workers develop professionally, gaining new skills they can put into every day practise, but seminars are open to all. To join simply follow the links below to register.

The first two seminars of the year are currently open for registration. Their details are below – click on the image for full details ad to register
