Work & Care Together (London)
Educate. Collaborate. Innovate.
One Stop Social are hosting our first convention for social work and care professionals in London! After our first Work and Care Together convention in Manchester in June 2018, we’re now heading to the capital to further support practitioners and facilitate professional development within the sector. This convention is focussing on the importance of high quality education within our profession, as well as the benefits that come from collaborating with different services.
The event will have 2 parts to it: an exhibition where you can network with some of the top front-line services, and a series of training sessions where you can receive a certificate of attendance to count towards your Continuous Professional Development.
Remember to use our hashtag #WorkCareTogether to be featured on our social media pages!
There will be 5 rooms with training sessions throughout the day, on a range of topics including the Mental Health Act and Signs of Safety. One of these rooms will be focussed all around employability skills, with workshops on CV Writing and Interview Skills. All attendees will be recorded and sent a certificate of attendance after the convention which will count towards your CPD.

This is an entirely FREE event, but we’re doing things a little differently when it comes to booking onto our training workshops this time around. After the enormous success of these sessions in Manchester, we’ve increased the number of rooms to 5 so we’ll be running a total of 25 workshops throughout the day. If you’d like to attend any of these sessions, you’ll need to reserve a General Admission ticket here (or in person on the day!) and then come to the One Stop Social stand at the exhibition and book on there!
