Social work education, training and standards in the Asia-Pacific region

Noble, Carolyn (2004) Social work education, training and standards in the Asia-Pacific region. Social work education, 23 (5). pp. 527-536. ISSN 0261-5479


This article discusses the joint project between the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) and the International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW) to establish guidelines for the training and standard setting that elucidates what social work represents on a global level. While it is impossible to address all the issues that might be significant in such a large scope, attention is given to the challenges establishing global standards might encounter in a region as diverse as the Asia-Pacific.
