RiPfA has developed an open access online map (also available to download) listing our publications and learning events against the ten areas of the Knowledge and Skills Statement (KSS) for adult social work.

The map is designed to help social workers navigate our extensive learning resource catalogue in order to meet and evidence the requirements of the KSS.

It includes guidance on how ASYEs, practice educators, practitioners, supervisors, and Principal Social Workers can use it to support professional development and evidence-informed practice.

About the Knowledge and Skills Statement

The Knowledge and Skills Statement (KSS) for social work with adults sets out what adult social workers are expected to know and be able to do after their first year in employment, and aims to support the development of a highly skilled workforce. The statement is a key part of a broader framework for continuing professional development in social work, which is likely to be developed further by the Chief Social Worker in the future (read Lyn Romeo’s blog). Social care practitioners can now see how RiPfA resources map to each of the ten statements, which will support them to make best use of our offer.
