The government is launching a training programme for social workers designed to ‘sharpen’ their skills around making permanency decisions, it will be optional and based on a new draft knowledge and skills statement on achieving permanence.

The government has re-stated its commitment to provide social workers with more opportunities for professional development.

The consultation on the draft knowledge and skills statement closes 9 September. More about how to contribute: here

Our mission is to help bring about improvements in practice and policy. Holding children at the centre of what we do through our work with and for them, we aim to lead and promote excellent care and services. The partnership consists of an elected Chair and elected Regional Leads who represent their regions at a national level (two from each of the nine regions within England).
