Consultation on revised proficiency standards for social workers

This consultation seeks views on proposed changes to the standards of proficiency for social workers in England.

The standards of proficiency are the threshold standards for safe and effective practice in the UK and play a key role in public protection. The proposed changes to the standards include: being able to identify strategies for professional resilience, understanding the principles of information governance, and understanding the concept of leadership and its application to practice. This consultation closes on 24 June 2016.
