Vice-Chancellor’s Staff Awards 2018 Nomination!

14th November 2018

NCPQSW have been nominated for the ‘Enriching Society Award’!

This award is presented to the person or team within Bournemouth University who has most enriched society by making a significant and sustainable impact. The National Centre for Post-Qualifying Social Work team have been nominated for our innovative work on fraud and financial scams, and for our work with multiple national partners to raise the quality of professional practice safeguarding vulnerable members of society. The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) commissioned us to investigate the impact of financial scams on vulnerable individuals and this has resulted in several positive outcomes. We have written a key text book as national guidance, published articles in academic and professional journals and have been funded and commissioned by several large organisations to conduct research in this area. We were the first, and only, institution to win the prestigious CTSI Hero Award 2017 in recognition of our impact on professional practice across the country. We have been involved in multiple Festival of Learning and Festival of Social Science events and our tools were also used at Glastonbury Festival. Our work is widely valued and also commended as a fantastic example of Fusion in action.

We look forward to an evening of celebrating our achievements, as well as those of our colleagues across the university.
