Developing social workers

We provide a range of information and services to help you to maintain an effective workforce of social workers in both adult and child and family services.

One of our most important programmes is the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) - a 12 month programme for supporting and assessing newly qualified social workers (NQSWs). We help employers of NQSWs to implement and embed the ASYE for both adult and child and family services.

We also have a range of tools and resources for employers of social workers which focus on professional development and leadership; and the knowledge and skills statement for social work supervisors in adult services.

You can keep up to date with the latest news and developments within the sector by taking a look at what is happening in your area and signing up to our social work briefing. You can do this by registering for or logging into your account and ticking the box for social work briefing.
