College for social workers proposal welcomed by REC

College for social workers proposal welcomed by REC

The REC is hailing victory after a new report was published today aimed at boosting standards in social work, which will include the establishment of a new national College for Social Work.

The REC had been invited by the British Association for Social Workers (BASW) to be part of a working group looking into the possibility of creating such a College.

In welcoming the proposal, Raluca Boroianu-Omura, Policy & PR Executive for REC Nursing and Social Care, said: The College would promote the status of social work and would create a powerful voice for the profession. The REC is a strong advocate for raising standards and promoting good practice in social work, and sees this as the Colleges main mission.

She added: Social workers would benefit greatly from having the support offered by a national college. It would provide workers with post qualifying support and career structure. It would allow social workers to have the help they need to deliver first class services.

This is a fantastic opportunity and to this end, the REC is committed to working closely with BASW and other key stakeholders to ensure that we keep up the momentum in achieving this aim.
