GSCC appoints interim director to oversee registration process

    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
    ratings.

    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.
