March 2024 Newsletter

Spring is in the air! The days are getting noticeably longer and whilst the weather is still offering us plenty of rain, nature around us is waking up. With a sense of warmth and light, I would like to share some energetic news with you from the Centre of Cross-Disciplinary Social Work. The academic team has been busy across the qualifying degree courses and undergone the process of revalidation and inspection from Social Work England.

Whilst all the paperwork for those has been submitted, we are now preparing for the revalidation process for the CPD framework. The revalidation comes at a time of great change and reform for statutory settings and Children’s Social Care in particular. It offers us a unique chance to review and re-imagine!

Some local authorities have shared their thoughts and plans with us on how they would like to respond to the radical reforms in Children’s Social Care. We would like to meet with our Practice Partners and see how we can meet the needs of the changing profession- from Child In Need lead practitioners to Specialist Child Protection leads. The proposed Early Careers Framework offers opportunities to rethink what Social Workers and allied professionals need to know in order to do their job well. Please get in touch with me ( if you would like to have a conversation.
