Social Work student success
For the second year running, a Keele Social Work student has won the BASW Social Work essay prize, one of four students nationally to do so. MA1 Social Work student, Daniel Cornes, wrote his winning essay on Austerity which secured him a £500 prize and the opportunity to attend the BASW conference.
As well as being a superb demonstration of the benefits of research-led teaching, Daniel's own commitment and engagement have further distinguished the programme this year as he has, along with Dr Grace Brown, established a new Social Work Student Society focusing on social action and change. Supported by £1000 from the School, the society will encourage student social workers to engage directly in action and research into austerity and poverty; homelessness; social justice.
