South Africa is one of the countries I haven’t visited yet but thanks to support of Ani who mapped most of the Schools of Social Work in South Africa during the International Social Work course at Thompson Rivers University, as well as social work educators: John Marfia from University of Fort Hare and Lambert from Stellenbosch University all the Schools are now fully mapped.
One can verify the current status of the social work education and connect with local colleagues by checking the SOUTH AFRICAN COUNCIL FOR SOCIAL SERVICE PROFESSIONS (SACSSP) website https://www.sacssp.co.za
Here is the current contact list of universities offering social work in South Africa: https://www.sacssp.co.za/Registrations/download/40
