Following the launch of similar studies in New Zealand and England, the Crossing Borders team has partnered with the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) to survey international social workers practicing in Australia. A growing number of foreign-qualified social workers every year applies to AASW to certify that their qualifications and experience make them eligible for AASW membership – the closest thing that social workers in Australia have to professional registration. Since 2010 nearly a thousand such applications have been assessed; the Association by August this year had already received 231 such requests for the year. As in the other jurisdictions studied, however, the experiences of those migrant professionals once they arrive in Australia is yet unknown.
The next phase of the ‘Crossing Borders’ survey is intended to explore these experiences. Read more on the project blog….
