Social Care Wales - consultation re proposed changes of rules and requirements to social work education

Dear Colleague,

We want to draw your attention to a consultation on 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.

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

The 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.

Take part in the consultation via Social Care Wales.

 

The closing date for comments is 31 July 2018.
