About this blog

A Department for Education blog for social workers, by social workers. Sharing news, views and advice for those working within child and family social work and considering working towards or having achieved accreditation status.

As the National Assessment and Accreditation System (NAAS) is rolled out to local authorities and trusts, this blog will include personal accounts of the assessment process, advice for professional development and links to resources and guidance.

This blog will also feature entries from the Chief Social Worker, sector partners and individuals involved in the creation and provision of continued professional development for social workers.
