Social Work Consultation


Posted in Branch news

Social Work England (SWE) is consulting social workers on changing their continual professional development (CPD) procedures for the December 2021 – December 2022 registration year.

This is important for your career. Social workers are required to record CPD with SWE to renew their professional registration.

They are urging all social worker members to take a short survey and have your say.

It’s anonymous and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. The closing date is 5pm Friday 30 July 2021.

TAKE THE SURVEY HERE: https://survey.alchemer.eu/s3/90355378/Social-Work-England-CPD

Your feedback will help shape UNISON’s response to SWE on behalf of all our social worker members

We will share the UNISON consultation response with members.

SWE aim to publish their consultation response and updated policy in autumn 2021. The new requirements will come into effect from 1 December 2021, after 2021 registration renewal. This means any changes will not affect this year’s renewal or CPD requirements. The requirement for registration in 2021 is one piece of CPD.
