Refreshing the Professional Capabilities Framework
Following an open tendering process, Research in Practice/Research in Practice for Adults (RiP/RiPfA) has been appointed as BASW’s partner in the project to refresh the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF).
RiP/RiPfA will be working closely with BASW staff, members, education professionals, service users and carers, and the wider social work sector, to bring the PCF up to date so that it can continue to be a beneficial tool to support the profession. The update will retain the integrity of the PCF while showing how it can link with other models of social work development and assessment, such as the Knowledge and Skills Statements.
RiP/RiPfA and BASW will report back to the PCF external multi-agency steering group at the end of summer with recommendations about the refreshed framework and how to roll it out across the social work profession, education sector and other organisations.
