The government recognises the need for a well-trained social work workforce and continues to invest in their education and training. The knowledge and skills statements set out what they should know and be able to do. Copies of the statements are attached.

In general the training needs of individual social workers are a matter for them and their employers, but where a need is identified we would expect relevant activity to be undertaken. We are, however, aware that many local authorities provide training on modern slavery for their social workers.
