What's in a name?

01 April 2015

The Faculty of Education is changing.

To better reflect the aim of the faculty to be an active voice for, and contributor to, a more socially just and equal society we are changing our name.

From 1 April 2015, the Faculty will become the Faculty of Education and Social Work. This change makes more visible the two main practitioner communities the Faculty engages with and serves – teachers and educators and those in the human services/social work and counselling professions.

It also reflects a long history of more than 30 years association of social work with education on the Epsom campus, and the significant recent growth in social work, including the development of a PhD programme in Social Work.

Over the coming year you will see the faculty name change on communication, publications, in advertising and on the web as we build on a new fresh look to reflect the change.
