As part of the Review of Social Work Education (RSWE), a recommendation from phase two is to introduce a mandatory, supported first year in practice for newly qualified social workers (NQSW).

The Scottish Government is considering this recommendation and wants to find out what you think. They will then decide on carrying out further work on what a supported year might look like and how this could be delivered and resourced.

Who should respond?

  • The Scottish Government would like to hear from organisations and individuals with an interest in the education of social workers, student social workers and social workers themselves.
