Knowledge and Skills Framework

The Knowledge and Skills Statement for Social Workers in Adults Services sets out what an Adult social worker should know and do by the end of their Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE). The statement incorporates the experiences and perspectives of frontline social workers, their managers, organisations and educators.

Professional Capability Framework

By the end of the ASYE Social Workers should have consistently demonstrated practice in a wider range of tasks and roles. Social Workers become more effective in their interventions confidently. They will gain experience and skills in relation to a particular setting, user group and also in complex situations. Seeking support in supervision appropriately, exercise initiative and evaluate their own practice.

Target group

Newly Qualified Social Workers.
