Professional standards guidance

The new regulator for social workers has developed new rules and standards for the social work profession.

These set out what a social worker in England must know and be able to do after completing their social work education or training. Social workers must continue to meet the professional standards to maintain their registration. The standards apply to all registered social workers in all roles and in all settings.
