Last week saw the publication of the final report of the Social Work Task Force, which was commissioned by the government to conduct a comprehensive review of the profession, and to make recommendations on the future direction of the profession. Among the conclusions are recommendations for social workers to require a license to practice, an overhaul of training, employers to agree standards on caseloads, and improved pay for experienced front-line staff. The government have accepted the report's conclusions in full.

The final report is available now, as is a summary version.
