The College is very pleased to share that the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) has recently launched an OASW Learning Centre for registered social workers and registered social service workers. This initiative – part of the Professional Development Skills Fund Project through the Ontario government – provides FREE online professional development and educational opportunities to College members across the province.
The OASW Learning Centre will focus on the following three initial key areas:
- mental health, with special consideration of Indigenous perspectives, developmental disabilities, veterans and seniors;
- gender-based violence, with special consideration of gender diverse experiences; and
- human trafficking, with special consideration of youth and Indigenous perspectives.
Virtual webinars on these topics are being offered until March 31, 2021.
The OASW Learning Centre will help College members – both social workers and social service workers – access professional development opportunities which will assist them in remaining current in their practice and in completing the College’s Continuing Competence Program.
