May 2011 – UK Supervision Policy

31/05/2011

The British Association of Social Workers (BASW) is producing a range of UK policy statements and documents to guide members and to support best practice, campaigning, lobbying and publications. The aim of the statements is to support social work professionals to have a strong sense of identity and to uphold the integrity of the profession based on the Code of Ethics.

The purpose of the supervision policy is to clarify what BASW considers to be the professional rights of social workers in relation to supervision and the responsibilities of the agency, the worker and the supervisor. Supervision needs to be seen in the context of widespread agreement among professional social work bodies globally about the purpose, functions and importance of supervision.
