About Continuing Education


The Department of Social Work established the Continuing Professional Education (CPE) in response to a national effort to promote lifelong learning, in enabling our workforce to engage in a momentum of self-initiated and continuous pursuit of knowledge, both for personal and professional development.

Our CPE consists of short courses and are conducted in a multi-modal teaching method ranging from online lessons to classroom interactions to supervision- or mentoring-based sessions. Designed with the National Social Work Competency Framework (NSWCF) in mind, our CPE courses aim to help Social Workers and all helping professionals acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes at different stages of their careers, so that they can remain competent and confident in their area of work throughout their career progression, while staying relevant with the increasingly complex social landscape in order to best serve the needs of their clients.

Social Workers who attend our CPE courses are eligible to earn CPE credits, which adds up to the required number for renewal of accreditation status. Click here to visit the Social Work Accreditation and Advisory Board and learn more about CPE credits.

Various subsidies and grants are available. Please refer to individual course information to find out more.
