Survey Information Sheet for Managers/Professional Supervisors of Newly Qualified Social Workers in Aotearoa New Zealand
Are you a social work manager or professional supervisor? Have you managed or supervised a Newly Qualified Social Worker in Aotearoa New Zealand within the last two years? If so, we would love to hear from you.
We are a team of researchers interested in finding out more about the experiences of Newly Qualified Social Workers in their first years of practice. Our team is made up of Neil Ballantyne from Open Polytechnic, Liz Beddoe from Auckland University, Kath Hay from Massey University, Jane Maidment from Canterbury University, Shayne Walker from Otago University and Zoe Mayhew, Research Assistant. The aim of our research is to find out:
- How well prepared are Newly Qualified Social Workers to enter professional social work practice?
- How is the learning for Newly Qualified Social Workers being supported and enhanced in the workplace?
To answer these question we invite you to take part in an anonymous, online survey. It should take ten minutes of your time and, to recognise your efforts, you will be able to enter your name in a prize draw for a $50 book voucher.
To meet the entry criteria for this survey you must be a:
- Manager or supervisor who has managed or supervised a Newly Qualified Social Worker (a social worker who has been qualified for two years or less) in Aotearoa New Zealand within the last two years.
Participants who complete the survey can, by posting to a separate email provided at the end of the survey, make contact with one of the researchers to go into a draw for a $50 book voucher. It will not be possible to connect your email to the survey content and so your information will be kept anonymous.
