Guidance for approval of qualifying social work courses

Guidance on the approval of new courses

This document provides guidance on how Social Work England will process your request for approval of a new qualifying social work course. The course will not have previously been approved by us or another regulator. 

Separate guidance is available for courses that have previously been approved or if you wish to make a change to an existing course.

This guidance has been written for course providers to explain the steps from the point of making a request to Social Work England to approve a course to a decision being made.
