Taskforce: Deadline nears for survey on national college

Practitioners have just a few more days to respond to a Social Work Task Force questionnaire on the proposed formation of a national college for social work.

The idea of a national college, based on similar institutions set up for the medical profession, was put forward by the taskforce as a way of rebuilding confidence in social work and improving public understanding.

An online questionnaire was launched last month to ask what functions the proposed college should take on and what powers it might have. The deadline for completion is 15 September.

The proposals have garnered support from the British Association of Social Workers, the Local Government Association and the Joint University Council Social Work Education Committee.
