The consultation is aimed at social workers, local authorities and LA representative bodies, other employers of social workers (private, voluntary and independent), users of social work services and their carers, higher education and further education institutions (HEIs) and their representative bodies.
Your views are sought on whether:
the right knowledge and skills have been identified (and at the right level);
there is anything you would like to see added; and
the proposed national requirements for the assessment of social workers at the end of their assessed year in employment are appropriately designed.
