Our rules

Our rules set out what people can expect from us across appointments, registration, education and training, and fitness to practise. They will provide the detail of how we will regulate social workers across England.

They have been developed with thousands of people across the country who have an interest in social work. As a result of this feedback our rules are robust, evidence based, and reflect the views of professionals.
