Social Work England Continued Fitness to Practice Framework - Sector Involvement
Social Work England are consulting on the different options for renewal of registration for social workers. The aim is to create a robust streamlined system that promotes integration of standards of practice – and to develop an audit model to assess continuing fitness to practice.
The consultation offers an opportunity to help shape the future of social care and ensure that social workers meet required standards to remain fit for practice. The following areas are of particular interest:
- The best way to consult on models of continuing fitness to practice.
- Issues in timeframes for introducing new arrangements.
- What would work well in terms of demonstrating fitness to practice.
- Key issues in relation to standards, professional development, providing evidence and learning opportunities.
To participate in the consultation, three focus groups will be taking place on:
- 5 July, Birmingham
- 11 July, Leeds
- 18 July, London
If you are unable to attend any of the focus group dates above but would like to provide feedback, please get in touch with Nimal Jude at Social Work England by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org - offering three possible time and date options for a half hour telephone conversation. Please note the consultation period will finish at the end of July.
