Abstract

This article discusses and evaluates the learning from a consultation with social work students in respect of the Global Agenda for Social Work (GA). At the time the GA was being drafted it was circulated widely for consultation. In the UK social work educators prepared a set of questions for use with almost 400 students from six different universities. Responses revealed the GA to be a valuable pedagogical tool, generating reflection on social work values, diversity, neo-liberal agendas and international social work. The article analyses responses and suggests ideas for further use of the GA in social work education.
