Government Replacing HCPC As Social Work Regulator
The Government Is Replacing The HCPC - A Guide
The government has set out formalised plans to strip the Health and Care Professions Council of its power to regulate social workers by 2018 and replace it with an executive agency accountable to the Department of Education.
The move has been long mooted - first suggested in January this year during a speech by Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, the plans made their first step into legislation when announced in May's Queen's Speech
before ministers unveiled the plans
But what does this mean for social workers? It could potentially be a time of great upheaval for the profession, so we at Liquid Personnel have created a handy guide explaining the situation and the future of social work regulation.
We will be constantly updating this resource as further announcements are made and further detail about this new social work regulator comes to light, so please check the guide on a regular basis to keep up-to-date with all developments.
