The School were delighted to welcome Mr Sean Holland, Chief Social Worker for Northern Ireland and Deputy Secretary in the Department of Health to talk to the new intake of social work students. Mr Holland congratulated the students on gaining a place on a highly regarded social work programme, and on the commencement of their career in the social work profession. He encouraged students to think about how they articulate the value and role of social work in society, and the contribution they can make to promoting and protecting social well-being, and in being agents of change.
