Continuing professional development for the social services workforce in Scotland

Published on 29 Sep 2006

We are publishing it at a time when there has never been greater interest in the concepts of CPD and lifelong learning, driven by factors such as the publishing of the SSSC Codes of Practice, the challenging timetable for SSSC registration and the emerging considerations of the 21st Century Social Work Review.
