Drower, Sandra J.; Kleijn, Amelia A.
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v28 n3-4 p355-380 Jul 2008
A three part Building Capacity Program developed for social work students in a South African tertiary education institution is described. The primary purpose of the Program was to build the capacity of social work students considered to be at risk of not completing their studies. The Program is located within the socio-political context of South Africa, and the interplay between education and social welfare in meeting the goals of national development. The content and structure of the Program are outlined and its contribution toward educational redress at tertiary level is explored. (Contains 1 figure and 1 note.)
