Abstract: Social work is a discipline envisaged to work with people inculcating their values, culture and traditions to bring about the development of the target groups. Hence it is needed for the social work training to be in a manner where the professionals are groomed to appreciate and work with people of different culture. One of the biggest challenges for social work practitioners is to come to terms with the role of theory in the practice of their discipline - a discipline that is fast-paced, but increasingly focused on dealing with one client at a time, and often reduced to a dyad emphasis in practice: that of client and worker. The paper attempts to identify the importance of cultural competency in social work education system paving way to respect and understand the various cultures and be professionals to cater to the need of the hour.
