5 Jun 2024


On 29 May 2024, in partnership with the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW), APSS of PolyU organised an online inauguration ceremony to officially announce and celebrate the opening of the Global Standards for Social Work Education and Training e-learning course.

The event signifies a significant milestone in the partnership between IASSW and APSS. One year ago, on 3 May 2023, an MoU was signed between IASSW and APSS. After 12 months of preparation, involving the effort of various renowned international scholars from the field, an e-learning course was completed.

The e-opening featured a line-up of esteemed speakers from around the world. Prof. Annamaria CAMPANINI, the President of IASSW, Prof. Antoinette LOMBARD, the incoming President of IASSW, and Prof. Eric CHUI, Head and Chair Professor of APSS, were distinguished speakers at the event. They opened the event, introduced the e-platform, and shared insights about social work education and training.

The official announcement of the e-learning course, as well as the event in general, was widely appreciated by over 200 attendees around the world. By bringing together experts and practitioners from diverse backgrounds, the event fostered a collaborative environment to address both foreseeable and unforeseeable challenges and opportunities in the field of social work education and training.
