Continuing professional development pathway for Social Workers Working with Adults with Learning Disability

This Continuing Professional Development Pathway should be read in conjunction with the Capabilities Statement for Social Workers working with Adults with Learning Disability (2019)

This Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Pathway for social workers working with adults with learning disability is an innovative and practice-focussed post-qualification training framework, which is underpinned by principles of co-production. Commissioned by the Department for Health and Social Care, it has been developed following extensive consultations with social workers, people with lived experience, employers, and academics, to identify the capabilities required for rightsbased social work practice with adults who have learning disability.
