Request for Proposals – Deliver professional development opportunities to our members

group seated at boardroom table

A central pillar in our new five-year strategic plan is to develop the College as a centre for social work resources and professional development opportunities.

Our goal is to support members throughout their career by developing high-quality professional development opportunities relevant to social work practice that are current, well informed and well designed to be delivered across Nova Scotia. We’ll build a schedule of professional development events that can be delivered across Nova Scotia.

We’re seeking individuals to deliver these meaningful professional development opportunities. Successful applicants will be contracted to deliver multiple professional development trainings in various communities across Nova Scotia.

The College’s Professional Development Committee will consider all topics for development. The following are examples of areas of interest to our members:

  • Social work leadership
  • Ethics
  • Social justice
  • Truth and reconciliation
  • Child welfare and development
  • Trauma informed care
  • Private practice
  • Intercultural social work praxis
  • Social work competencies

How to apply

Please submit your proposal with the following:

  • your bio outlining your qualifications and experience
  • an abstract outlining the workshop/session/training you hope to offer
  • a budget for design and implementation of the professional development opportunity
