The following post is an opening to a series of posts aimed at giving some coherence to my thoughts about Frontline, pulling together and sharing the pieces of information I have researched about Frontline, its antecedents, its ‘core’ project and some of the wider implications it has for the SW in England at least. This has led me into having a good look at what is going on with the ‘state’ in state education in England as it provides the original template for the Frontline.
An impressively large and enthusiastic People’s Assembly met in central London on June 22nd. Among the 4000 delegates were many SWAN supporters, whether representing the London group or from other organisations so it will be interesting to see what ideas we can bring back into social work and SWAN.
The government has announced an independent review on the education of social workers. This seems to be concerned particularly with education in relation to adult service users. See below the official announcement and the links which it provides. David Croisdale-Appleby who is to Chair the review, is Chair of Skills For Care the national organization concerned with the social care workforce. His experience relates to social care rather than social work.
