Social Work England to have power to limit duties

The government said that the new regulatory body, Social work England, will be able to place conditions of registration on social workers who do not meet expected professional standards including clear rules around conditional registration, and how the restrictions can be reviewed, changed and removed.

 The majority of respondents to the consultation backed this approach.

 They have also stated that they will have the power to refuse registration if a social worker's English language skills are not good enough.

 They are wanting Social Work England to make a unique and lasting contribution to the profession of social work and to the role of professional regulation in how it supports improvement and raises standards in practice and care.
