Social Work England : Consultation on the Continual Professional Development (CPD) Standards

Social Work England : Consultation on the Continual Professional Development (CPD) Standards

Many of you who are on the Social Work England registered will have recorded and reflected on your CPD over the past year, and should be well underway in doing the same this year.

During the first year of their regulation of social work in England, they specified a minimum requirement of at least one piece of CPD, although they recommended recording at least 4 times per year.

On the website there are 2 versions of the template to record your CPD, some found the unstructured form easier to use.

They have also produced guidance for registrants who are not in direct front line practice, or currently not working.

As part of a series of reviews they are undertaking, Social Work England are carrying out a consultation on the CPD standards.

They are seeking views on the following :

  • An increase in the number of CPD entries from 1 to 2
  • Setting broad themes for CPD
  • The proposed template for recording
  • Social workers speaking with a registered social work peer as part of their CPD
  • Changes to validation
  • Measuring the impact

To take part in the consultation  click on this link, the survey closes 5pm , August 11.

At Chinara Enterprises we have a plethora of resources and affordable, flexible CPD to help social workers meet Social Work England’s requirement.
