The revised Diploma in Social Work could be implemented next
year, said training council CCETSW, which is expected to approve
the revisions this week.
Rachel Pierce, assistant director overseeing the review, said
the relaxed timetable was a response to fears of delays in gaining
approval by boards of educational institutions.
Responses had been supportive, and the dissenting view of a
group of academics (News, 9-15 February) was ‘very much the
exception’, she added.
Other proposed changes are to the wording of the statement on
anti-racism, and to the second opinion on practice placements.
