Partnerships and community links Partnerships and community links

All of our teaching and research in the School of Social Work at UEA involves working closely both with local and regional communities and with national providers of services. We work in partnership with all the social work agencies in the region - whether to supply placements, to fund their social workers on post-qualifying programmes or to participate in our research projects.

The School plays a leading role nationally in driving forward an agenda for excellence in social work education and at an Eastern Regional level it has a long tradition of providing a focus for developing and maintaining high standards of social work training and social work practice throughout the region, all in partnership with and as commissioned by our agency partners.

UEA has a small dedicated Community University Engagement team who are on hand to advise staff and students about different aspects of their engagement activity including ideas, planning, evaluation and impact.  Financial and practical assistance is also available via a Small Expenses Fund and the loan of equipment such as audio recorders.  You can find more information and case studies on the Community University Engagement website
