Abstract:The major historical shifts that have occurred in South Africa, the radical transformation of the South African welfare sector, and the strategic positions that social workers are in to inform the policymaking process and to act as policy analysts, means that South African schools and departments of social work have to accord social policy prominence in the curriculum. As described in the article, social policy is regarded with varying emphases by different schools/departments across the country. The general trend is that social policy is being increasingly seen as an area that warrants special consideration in social work curricula. Bibliogr., sum.
