Graduate membership benefits

The Graduate membership fee recognises that new graduates have many expenses to recover in their first few years after graduation. For student members who have recently qualified, we believe that your continued membership of AASW is important, to ensure you have access to quality support and resources as you take the next step in your career journey. 

A Graduate membership provides you with the following AASW member benefits:

Discounted CPD

Get access to on-demand content, workshops and events at member-only prices.


Be recognised for your skills and experience in your field with an AASW Credential

Find a Supervisor

Search for social workers who provide supervisory services using our Find a Supervisor tool

The Graduate membership is available for members renewing or joining within two years of graduating with their first qualifying social work degree.
