Welcome to Children's Workforce
Progress and Continuing Professional Development

Progress is East Sussex’ continuing professional development pathway for social work professionals including managers. It describes opportunities and expectations for Social Workers working in Children’s Services as they move through their careers.

Progress enables Social Workers to:

  • Build on existing and develop new knowledge and skills required for a strengths based approach, underpinned by the Professional Capability Framework (PCF) and Knowledge and Skills Statements (KSS)
  • Understand and work towards requirements for pay and progression, social work registration and further accreditation
  • Navigate your own individual career path through a range of supporting and enriching opportunities.

UPDATE: ACTIVATE YOUR ONLINE SOCIAL WORK ENGLAND ACCOUNT AND RECORD YOUR CPD

On 2 December, Social Work England took over regulatory duties from HCPC and all registration details will be transferred over to Social Work England. 

What you need to know

The significant change is that from after this date all training and development has to be recorded online with Social Work England and this will be required to maintain your registration.

What you need to do:

If you haven’t already you need to activate you on-line account via :

https://www.socialworkengland.org.uk/

The registration period will begin 1st September -end of November, 2020.  You will need to have an active CPD account with some content on it as they will be drawing on 2.5 % social workers across England to review their CPD.  If you are picked, they will be in touch with you but as long as your CPD account is active they will not ask for more information unless they feel further assessment is required (i.e: CPD activity is not sufficient)

See below for tips on doing this from SWE:
