Problem Brief

Critically Reflective Action Learning

Critically Reflective Action Learning S4CThe use of action learning in supporting newly qualified social workers (NQSW) has been promoted by Skills for Care since we began supporting employers firstly through the NQSW Framework for adults’ services, and latterly through the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE). Many employers now use this methodology as part of their ‘support package’ for NQSWs, to enhance supervision and reflective practice discussions, provide additional learning opportunities or as a support for supervisors and managers.

Skills for Care’s approach has been to develop a sustainable resource for employers through training action learning facilitators. The ASYE along with other reforms following the Social Work Reform Board has, among many other things, thrown renewed focus on developing reflective and analytical practice. Employers needing to support their staff can see through this report how ‘critically reflective action learning’ can contribute to this professional activity, thereby improving the outcomes for people who need care and support and their professional social work staff.

Skills for Care is pleased to publish this report as received from the Centre for Action Learning Facilitation (C-ALF), and places on record its thanks to Mike Pedler, Christine Abbott, Cheryl Brook and John Burgoyne for researching and compiling the report, and to all the contributors to their work.
