New visions of social work advocating for environmental justiceSocial workers have long been critical to the healthy functioning of societies. Through the years, the important roles they play had to adapt and synchronise with the times. In today's world of climate crisis and its unequal impacts on people, animal and plant lives, the social work profession is rising to meet new challenges that affect humanity. Social workers already play a vital role in disaster relief, although that focus has been more on helping individuals, families and communities to lessen the impacts in the aftermaths of natural or man-made disasters. The increasing incidences of intense weather events and predictions of what's to come, demand that modern disaster management interventions encompass not only reactive but proactive responses. Like most countries, South Africa experiences a shortage of social workers, yet their role is vital in creating a more just, healthy, safe and sustainable environment. These drivers of social change are highlighting social work as one of the most crucial and globally relevant careers. 4 May 2021 Read more

The state of coaching in 2021Coaching is a growth industry and while Covid has caused severe disruptions, practitioners and clients have mostly been able to pivot to online environments and keep going. This is important because individuals, families and organisations have needed all the support they could get over the last year. Under the global pandemic cloud, we've grappled with fundamental changes to our family lives, threats to livelihoods and significant adjustments to working life. These are just the kinds of challenges to get through with the help of a coach, especially as we have also had to keep our attention on progressing towards our personal and work goals. 12 Mar 2021 Read more

Sacap launches Bachelor of Social Work degreeOur world of work is changing so rapidly that many young people wonder whether their chosen career might exist once their studies are completed and they are ready to enter the workplace. Social work is one of those in-demand careers in South Africa. Across the globe, the focus on social justice, climate crisis impacts and economic inequality is only intensifying, and the world's need for people with relevant skills and abilities to help change lives for the better is increasing all the time. It makes sense then that there's a significant need to intensify social sciences education and training to effectively respond to the changing socio-economic and environmental contexts. 5 Feb 2021 Read more

Sacap's higher certificate in counselling and communication skills helps bridge pandemic disruptionAs we move into the second year of life upended by the global pandemic, SA's school-leavers are weighing their limited options. While some will forge onto their chosen tertiary education path, others may be set back by not achieving a bachelor's pass or be uncertain about what they want to study. Travelling and gaining world experience before you make up your mind is off the cards for the time being, and probably for most of 2021. The challenge for these school-leavers is how to make the best of these tough circumstances. 21 Jan 2021 Read more
