ABSTRACT
The article reports that social work leaders have opposed social worker William Herbert Laming's recommendation to split the social work degree into children's and adult's specialisms following a year of generic training in Great Britain. According to social work leader Ray Jones, specialising in the degree could result in newly qualified social workers having a limited understanding of adult social care.
