Competences such as understanding and addressing social justice issues, leadership and management, strategic planning, and problem-solving are essential for effective social work managers. What skills and knowledge should future professionals have? Actually, as I was doing some research on the topic, I realised that there are not so many theory-based competence frameworks available, especially with regard to social worker managers. In this episode, we want to explore this question. And I will take into consideration the publication by Shelly Wimpfheimer. In later episodes, we will also explore other typologies. A regular discussion about core competences for the curriculum of social work management is essential for its constant quality development. I apologise for the deep voice in today’s podcast.
