The Standards for Employers of Social Workers in England require Devon County Council to provide ‘opportunities for continuing professional development, as well as access to research and practice guidance’ to support social workers to work effectively.

The Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) outlines the capabilities expected of social workers at different levels in nine interdependent areas of practice.  The PCF is explicit that social workers at all levels should:

•           Have a critical awareness of current issues and new evidence-based practice research
•           Demonstrate knowledge and application of appropriate legal and policy frameworks and guidance that inform and mandate social work practice.
•           Recognise the contribution, and use, of research to inform practice
•           Demonstrate a critical understanding of research methods

This invitation to tender is designed to provide social workers and social care staff working in adult, child and young people’s settings, with access to knowledge resources and learning opportunities to meet the above requirements.
