A new qualification has been agreed for inspectors in the
regulation of health and social care services, social work training
body CCETSW has announced.
The qualification is based on national occupational standards
produced by TOPSS. The aim is to ensure all inspectors can
demonstrate nationally recognised levels of competence. New
inspectorates will have the responsibility for the regulation of
health and social care services transferred from local authorities
from April 2001.
Students will be able to undertake the training from September
