Social Work Qualifications and Regulation in European Economic Area (EEA)

Final report

This report provides detailed information on social work regulation, registration process, education and training (including practice placements), fitness to practise and other valuable information for a considerable number of EEA countries. The high level of EEA countries’ engagement with the research process highlights a mutual understanding of the value of information sharing in relation to the social work profession across Europe. This is expected to grow with the increasingly free movement across Europe and the shortages of social workers in some countries including England.
