It offers an opportunity for local Practice Educators, practitioners, students and academics to come together and share knowledge and views about Social Work practice but is open to all.

This event is being held to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968 and will include a time to celebrate, reflect on the journey so far and look to the future.
