ANZSWWER Social Work Educator Award

Prize/Award: Award

Description

Social Work Educator of the Year.
Cate Thomas as the Course Director of the Social Work program at Charles Sturt University, led the School in a new direction during a time of much change within the university. Through extensive consultation with the discipline team, Aboriginal staff and CSU’s Indigenous Board of Studies, Cate facilitated an audit of Australian Indigenous content across the curriculum. This led her to facilitate the development of both Indigenous Australian social work and eco-social work multi-disciplinary subjects. Australian Indigenous content is now included across highly relevant and innovative areas of study. Cate’s vision and courage ensures the effectiveness of our graduates to work with Indigenous Australians.
