Social Work Practice Fellows (SWPF)


A Professional Development Program for Social Work Supervisors of Direct Practice across the Life Course


Eligibility: This program is strictly limited to social workers employed in a wide range of agencies. You must be currently supervising social work staff (not only students).

Social Work Practice Fellows

Overview

CEs: 36

Limited to 25 social work supervisors. 

There is a critical need for enhanced continuing education for social work supervisors. Social workers are often thrust into supervisory roles without the skills, knowledge, or support they need to succeed. This premier 36-hour certificate program features an advanced curriculum in terms of sophistication of content with a focus on some of the most complex issues that challenge M.S.W. supervisors. This program is part of a multi-site initiative being coordinated by Adelphi University faculty with support from the Florence V. Burden Foundation and the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York.  

Eligibility and Requirements: The participants selected for the program must be MSW-level social workers who are supervising social service workers from diverse settings. Supervisees can include any number of M.S.W.s, B.S.W.s, or other social service staff, in any combination. Attendees are expected to attend all six program days as well as completing anonymous pre- and post-program surveys. (All survey data will be de-identified and reported only in aggregate. Your name will not be linked in any way with your responses to this survey.)

Application: Social work supervisors must apply for acceptance into the program. We will strive to bring together a diverse group of participants. Apply early. Based on the volume of applications, acceptance decisions will be made every 2-3 weeks until the program is full. You can register and pay after acceptance into the program

Cost: $795

To successfully complete the SWPF certificate program, participants are expected to: 

  • Attend all 6 training days.
  • Complete pre- and post-program self-assessments of supervisory practices.
  • Participate in activities and discussions.
  • For CEs, full attendance is required; partial credit is not given for partial attendance. A CE certificate will be issued for each separate workshop.
  • Certificates of completion will be issued at the end of the program to those who attended all 6 days.
You must be accepted into the Social Work Fellows Program before registering for this specific program. To apply for the Social Work Fellows Program, click here.

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEUs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”


Cancellation Policy

Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds for cancellations made seven working days or fewer before the event for any reason—or for no-shows.  We can provide credit towards a future workshop up to 24 hours before the event. After that, no credit will be issued.
