Social Work Reform Board

As you may be aware the General Social Care Council (GSCC) will transfer to the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) for social workers in England later this year.

In advance of the transfer, the HCPC will be writing to individuals registered with the GSCC in August  .  In order to prepare for the transfer and provide an outline of the implications of the change of professional body, a series of half day briefings have been held in July.

These sessions addressed the immediate requirements for registration of social workers and also longer term practice issues, such as Continued Professional Development (CPD) and the introduction of the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF). 

Please find below copies of the presentations from the day to provide further details and some frequently asked questions to help with any queries you may have. Should the answer to any questions not be available on this page, please complete the query form below and we will be able to provide an answer.
