Former Camden social services director Jane Held has been
appointed interim director of regulation at the General Social Care
Council, writes Derren Hayes.
Held, who suddenly quit her job at Camden, takes up her post
this week while the GSCC undertakes the permanent recruitment of
the role. She will help oversee the registration of all social
workers to the social work register by April 2005.
Since leaving Camden, Held has been working at the Commission
for Social Care Inspection, and has also been director at Southend.
It was rumoured she left Camden because of the council failed to
get three stars in last year’s social services star
At the same time former director of standards and regulation at
GSCC, Mike Wardle has been appointed to the new post of deputy
chief executive and director of strategy.
