Consultation launched on social work bursary

A consultation has been launched to review the social work bursary scheme in order to ensure it continues to attract sufficient high quality candidates to come forward to study and work as social workers. This follows from recommendations made by the Social Work Taskforce.

At a time of financial pressures there is a need to ensure that funding for social work education delivers value for money. In order to ensure quality and achieving value for money it has been decided to consult on reforming the bursary. Five options are set out in the consultation document.
