The purpose of this policy is to clarify what BASW considers to be the professional rights and responsibilities of social workers in relation to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and the essential role that BASW has in supporting members with their development. CPD is vital to ensure that social workers provide quality services, develop their practice and achieve good outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
This policy is for social workers in the United Kingdom (UK) but it is also important for employers as well as education and training providers. This document has three further sections: a definition of a rights based approach, the context informing the policy, and the BASW policy statement on a human rights based approach to social work.
The purpose of the Supervision Policy is to clarify what BASW considers to be the professional rights of social workers in relation to supervision and the responsibilities of the agency, the worker and the supervisor. Supervision needs to be seen in the context of widespread agreement among professional social work bodies globally about the purpose, functions and importance of supervision.
This policy clarifies what BASW considers to be the rights, protections and responsibilities of social workers in relation to whistleblowing and the essential role that BASW has in supporting members. Being prepared to whistle blow is one of the practice principles in the BASW Code of Ethics.
