Continuing Professional Education and Learning Framework
26 October 2017
This is the executive summary of the year 3 report of the independent evaluation of the Continuing Professional Education and Learning (CPEL) Framework for social workers. It forms part of a five-year longitudinal evaluation, which was commissioned by Social Care Wales (formerly the Care Council for Wales) and is being conducted by Cordis Bright.
The evaluation considers: (a) how the CPEL Framework helps to improve the quality of social work practice, (b) how it helps to improve career progression and career development, (c) how it improves retention of social workers, (d) how it helps to improve outcomes for service users and carers, and (e) the level of take-up, attendance and completion of the CPEL Framework programmes.
