Consultation: SSSC - Standards in Social Work Education in Scotland

Written by The Editorial Team

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) have revised the Standards in Social Work Education (SiSWE), which underpin social work degree programmes in Scotland, to make sure they reflect the many changes in social work practice since their publication in 2003.

This consultation is to gather the views of the sector, stakeholders and key partners on the draft revised SiSWE and ask whether they meet the needs of current social work practice.

The draft revised SiSWE are a result of the Review of Social Work Education, led by the SSSC, which has already had significant stakeholder involvement to get to this stage.

The consultation is open until 5pm on Friday 20 January 2017. Following this consultation the SSSC intend to publish the revised SiSWE during 2017/18 and implement them during 2018/19.
