Her Majesty's Government whether social workers working with children who show indicators that they may be victims of modern slavery receive any training on the Achieving Best Evidence guidelines.
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.
