It is evident that good information is essential to effective social work practice not only in terms of assessment but also in highlighting the availability and cost of resources. The increasing role of Information Technology (IT) within agencies places demands on trainers and qualifying programmes to equip workers with the necessary skills and knowledge. This paper reports on an exploration of the use of information technology by a group of child care workers in one English social services department. The results of the study are presented and the implications for teaching and training computer skills to social workers are discussed.
