You can read the statements here via the link.  

Please share this with your children and family social work members and ask them for their views on

  • Whether there is anything else that should be included in the statement which sets out what a practice leader and practice supervisor needs to know and be able to do.

Members please send their views on the statements to m.egan@unison.co.uk by the 26th of August along with any other comments about the assessment and accreditation scheme.
