I have already taken a swing at the silly pass/fail test that the British government seems determined to use to confer approved status, or not, on children and family social workers in England.
But I am now having what can only be called a fully-fledged ‘Clarkson’. It’s not cold food that’s winding me up. It’s the utter stupidity of thinking that the government can commission a few people from two private companies to develop a test for a whole profession.
I fully support the open letter that the Joint University Council Social Work Education Committee has written to the government deploring the decision.
