Social worker forums

04 - 31 July 2018
All Wales
Social Care Wales

During July we are holding forums for registered social workers in each of the seven regions across Wales. We are doing this because we need to hear your views first hand on a range of developments that may affect you. The topics we want to discuss with you include:

  • Proposed changes to qualifying training for social workers (the social work degree)
  • Our plans for the next phase of the Continuing Professional Education and Learning Framework i.e. the post qualifying learning opportunities available to you
  • Revised practice guidance for social workers in Wales

It is several years since we held similar forums and we really hope you can join us. This is a critical time for the social work profession and the forums are a genuine opportunity for you to shape the future. We’ll be giving particular attention to the CPEL Framework with some far-reaching changes a possibility.
