A New Way to CEU
The purpose of Social Work Supper Club is to provide a supportive space for Social Workers to focus on professional development and to promote the field. SWSC offers a podcast with discussions covering a variety of practice topics, backed by evidenced-based research. We offer on-the-go learning opportunities with a focus on translating methods into practice.
Social Work SC offers continuing education units for LBSW, LMSW and LCSW levels of licensure with opportunities for online learning, webinars, and in-person events. SWSC members can register to take a quiz at the end of each podcast episode. A wide range of practice topics to enhance professional practice, values, skills, and knowledge.
To obtain continuing education units, enroll in your course, take a listen to a short podcast episode, review the applicable slides (for you visual Social Workers out there) and take a short quiz to show all that you have learned! Course slides are printable, easy to digest, and you can continue to access it at any time. Estimated time per unit is 1 hour. Certificates of completion of at least 75% passing grade will be automatically generated and stored for up to 3 years in case of audit.
**board approval of CEU credits is still pending at this time
