Australian College of Social Work
Welcome to the Australian College of Social Work. The College was set up in 2011 within the AASW to recognise and promote advanced social work practice and provide leadership in practice excellence. The College recognises and acknowledges the highest professional standards and qualifications that social workers offer and promotes social work excellence and expertise. Our Foundation Fellows are committed to providing leadership in this first phase of the College and to its goals for Australian social work into the future.
Following a period of reflection and review, we are delighted to re-open the College to new members. The College Steering Committee has been working on a new and sustainable future for the College. I am indebted to members of that committee, especially my CoChair Carmel Flaskas, for their support. I encourage you to browse through the pages on the site to learn more about the College, its Foundation Fellows and future developments. We are keen to hear ideas from our experienced and expert social workers across all spheres of practice and locations.
Of course there is much work to be done and I look forward to meeting members and working with you all on developing the Australian College of Social Work as an important institution for social work excellence.
