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)
    requirements.

    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.
