About the consultation

We are seeking your views about our proposed changes to the rules and requirements for social work education.

As the regulatory body for social work training, we make rules for the approval and quality assurance of social work education at qualifying and post-qualifying levels.

We recently reviewed the rules for the qualifying programme for the social work degree and the Consolidation Programme for Newly Qualified Social Workers.

This consultation document sets out the issues the review has picked up and the proposed changes.

This consultation looks at three areas:

  • recruitment, selection and progression through the qualifying programme
  • the content, practice learning and research requirements of the qualifying programme
  • the learning outcomes for the Consolidation Programme for Newly Qualified Social Workers.
