Learning pathways


The research-mindedness learning resource is intended for use by both social work and social care practitioners and students. It is designed to be dipped into at any point. However it is sometimes difficult to decide where to start reading first. It is also recognised that if you are a student your needs and interests may differ from those of a practitioner.

Two suggested learning pathways have been designed, therefore, to assist you with finding the subject areas that might be useful for you, and in what order. These are for guidance purposes only. You may navigate your way through the resource content to suit your individual preferences.
