Circle Annual Lecture 2014, A Celebration: 40 Years of Practice Learning in Circle

Prof Bill Whyte will give the annual Circle lecture at the Lecture Theatre, Royal Botanic Garden, 20A Inverleith Row, Edinburgh on 8th October from 6.00 - 8.00pm.

Circle is a Scottish Charity with a rich tradition of providing holistic and intensive family support to vulnerable and marginalised families. Throughout the years, students have benefited from a breadth of learning opportunities within the range of Circle’s projects which have evolved to meet the needs of such families. As a former student of the organisation, Prof Bill Whyte discusses the importance of such learning for social work students in the present, highlighting why a placement which equips students with the broadest range of knowledge and skills is vital.
