DfE publishes recommendations for the education and training of social workers

A report commissioned by the Department for Education in to the education and training of social workers has made the following recommendations: the Chief Social Worker should produce a single definition of what a newly qualified children’s social worker needs to understand and be able to do; undergraduate trainees should be allowed to specialise in children’s social work and complete all placements in children’s social care.
