Social Work-case study interview - February 16th 2009, 08:12 PM


Got my interview at York on 25th. SOO NERVOUS.

They say that just before the interview we will be given a case study to look over, which will then be used as the basis of the interview questions.

I have no idea what to expect from this, and was wondering if anyone had done similar.

I've tried looking online, and the only thing i found was http://www.sdt.ac.uk/resources/Inver...dies290304.pdf

But...i didnt know if this was what it meant? It seemed far-fetched. Like expecting us to know too much, as it asks about the acts and things which surely there meant to teach?...

Will the case study be like newspaper article, or just an explanation of a situtation? What type of questions will be asked?

HELP please, i'm soo damn nervous

Can you summarise that article please? Not many people will download a PDF which, for all we know, contains a virus.

I suspect it could be either, most of the questions would probably be "was the social worker right to do so" or "explain what you would do"

Doesnt need downloading, just opens up in another window... but here is an example:

Case Study 2
A disabled student applies to do a Social Work course at a
university. The university looks for experience of voluntary work in
its admissions criteria for the social work course. The student’s
disability has meant that she has found it difficult to secure
voluntary work in comparison to non-disabled people. The social
work department refuses the student a place on the grounds that
she has not done enough voluntary work.
1. Might this be unlawful treatment on the grounds of disability?
2. If so, what reasonable adjustments might an institution make
to ensure that it is not treating a disabled person less
3. What justifications might there be in treating the disabled
person/student less favourably or failing to make a
reasonable adjustment?
4. What systems might an institution put in place to ensure that
it is meeting its responsibilities under the Act?

Fact is. I'm not sure if this is what it means for the interview. Hope it isnt. But anyone had experience?
