Welcome to the Oxfordshire Social Work Academy

Message from Shaun Hanks, Principal Social Worker.

The ‘Academy’ will help us better coordinate student placements, ASYE’s, Continuing Professional Development, HCPC requirements and learning from serious case reviews. We are also improving links with local universities to help us research and provide different learning experiences. The Academy will be launched in September and the website will signpost to a wide range of career development and training opportunities. 

The Academy will also lead the work in implementing the new Knowledge and Skills Statements (KSS) for social workers

Date for your diary

In December, you will be required to re-register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). This is a timely reminder to update your learning log at least every two months with your continuing professional development activities.
