To mark the 50th anniversary of the Social Workers’ Educational Trust (SWET) next year, we are pleased to announce a significant one-off grant of £5,000 to celebrate the occasion.
The SWET Fellowship is awarded by the Trustees to social work professionals who have made a significant contribution to the education of social workers and/or the development of social work practice locally, nationally and internationally.
The Trustees of SWET are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Professor Joyce Lishman. She will be known to thousands of students, social workers and Practice Educators as a prolific author and editor of many iconic social work textbooks and journal articles about communication, practice learning, evaluation and dissemination of research into evidence based practice.

It’s always nice to hear back from applicants after we’ve awarded funding. We were delighted to get an email this week from someone who had been given a grant.
Learning within teams is an important way in which social workers can develop their skills and knowledge. SWET can provide financial help of up to £1000 to assist team learning.
We’re looking for 3 people to join our Board of Trustees. If you are passionate about supporting social workers with their continuing professional development and enhancing their knowledge and skills, as well as promoting social work education and learning more widely, then we’d like to hear from you.

It’s Trustees’ Week – and we wanted to say a huge thank you to our own Trustees. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the work of SWET.
