The Department for Education sought views on two draft statements of knowledge and skills:
• for practice supervisors of child and family social workers
• for practice leaders of child and family social work
The statements will be used together with the previously-published knowledge and skills for Approved Child and Family Practitioners, to develop a national assessment and accreditation system for child and family social workers. The system will apply to three levels of practice: Approved Child and Family Practitioner (ACFP); Practice Supervisor (PS); and Practice Leader (PL).
