Post-registration training ’too vague’

Registered social workers called on the General Social Care
Council last month for more details on what they need to do to
fulfil their post-registration training and learning (PRTL)

Registered social workers will have to re-register with the GSCC
every three years and complete 15 days, or 90 hours of PRTL, over
this period. Failure to do so could result in a charge of
professional misconduct.

But current advice is vague. PRTL requirements can be met
through a range of activities that could reasonably be expected to
advance the social worker’s professional development or
contribute to the development of the profession as a whole.

Delegates at a GSCC annual conference workshop complained that
they had not been given enough information about what was expected
of them.
