MINISTER DLAMINI TO IMPROVE SOCIAL WORK PROFESSION THROUGH BI-LATERAL MEETING WITH THE STATE OF MARYLAND - GAUTENG PROVINCE Print E-mail
Monday, 05 February 2018

The Minister of Social Development, Bathabile Dlamini will, as part of the Bi-lateral visit by the State of Maryland, on Monday, February 05, meet with representatives of the State of Maryland to discuss ways through which the Social Work profession can be improved.

Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by both South Africa and the USA in May last year thus giving effect to bilateral cooperation between the two countries on matters of mutual interest.

Amongst the areas identified where the two countries share mutual interest, is the Social Work programme as a profession. The discussion will look at amongst others the development of a Post-Graduate Social Work Qualification, student exchange programme between South Africa and the State of Maryland as well as innovations within the social work profession. Best practices in the delivery of social services will also be shared by both countries.

Members of the media are invited to attend and cover bi-lateral visits planned as follows:
