Social work in England is a regulated profession. This means that to be able to practise as a social worker, individuals must be registered with Social Work England.
Once registered, all social workers are listed on a public register. This register provides assurance that the people who practise as social workers in England have the right skills and qualifications and are capable of safe and effective practice.
Join guest speaker Philippa Geddes, Regional Engagement Lead (South West), Social Work England as she discusses what social workers are required to do to re-register with Social Worker England.
During this webinar, she will be looking into what documentation and evidence social workers must provide to successfully re-register, both in terms of their qualified status and in terms of their continued professional development (CPD) plans.
