The Social Work Reform Board (SWRB) reforms for social work education, based on the Professional Capabilities Framework, were passed to The College of Social Work for further development and implementation in October 2011. They include new arrangements for admissions and selection, a new degree framework and new arrangements for securing sufficient high quality placements. The final guidance and resources were agreed by the Transitional Professional Assembly of The College on 19 April 2012.
This literature review completed in May 2011 looks at the proposals for revisions to the social work degree curriculum in the context of evidence from published and unpublished sources and the original concerns raised by the Social Work Task Force. Information from this review contributed to the new curriculum framework agreed by the Social Work Reform Board (July 2011) and subsequently approved by The College of Social Work in April 2012.
