Overview

Consultation on the introduction of a new national assessment and accreditation system for child and family social workers.

Why We Are Consulting

We would like your views on how we intend to deliver a national assessment and accreditation system for child and family social workers as part of our wider reforms of children’s social care.

The introduction of the National Assessment and Accreditation System – NAAS will provide, for the first time, a consistent way of providing assurance that child and family social workers, supervisors and leaders have the knowledge and skills required for effective practice.

The consultation seeks your views on a future career pathway for child and family social workers and the role of the National Assessment and Accreditation System.

 


 

What Happens Next

The results of the consultation and the Department's response will be published on GOV.UK in spring 2017.
