Partner with us

The Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) is the leading organisation representing social workers in Australia, and it offers top-quality, specialised professional development programs that cater specifically to social workers. We understand that leaders and managers may have limited time to focus on their team’s development.

Therefore, we have developed comprehensive training and development programs for organisations that employ social workers and frontline workers, which include:

  • In-house training (online and in-person)
  • Bespoke training
  • Customised Learning Solutions
  • Supervision Training


Many organisations face the challenge of hiring and retaining frontline staff. Studies suggest that providing opportunities for learning and growth is the primary driver of a positive work culture and peak performance. Nowadays, employees value the chance to develop their skills and knowledge within an organisation and look for such opportunities when choosing a workplace.

AASW can take care of your training needs and help you establish a culture of learning, engage your teams, and identify areas where your teams’ skills and knowledge may need improvement.

If you have any pain points or challenges you would like us to help you with, please do not hesitate to contact us.
