I would like to peruse a career in social work which is also the topic I want to study at uni. I’m currently writing my EPQ and want it to write it based on social work but I’m struggling for a subject/topic to write about, anyone got any ideas?

You could actually focus on the role of a social worker with questions such as:
-What characteristics or qualities make a social worker effective?
-What barriers prevent social workers from always doing their job to the best of their ability?

Or you could you at a specific case, for example:
-Was the abuse and death of Baby P caused by failings in the welfare system, and what lessons must this system learn?

Or how about a wider issue?
-Is multi-agency working within the social care system effective?
-How can we make child safeguarding the responsibility of everybody, not just a few?
-How is adoption and fostering viewed by the media?

Just some ideas, hope this has helped trigger some ideas! 😊

I like the idea above about a case study. Perhaps you could pick a lesser known one, concentrate on it, and relate it to social work in practice and what you learn from it?
