June 2009
Community Care;6/11/2009, Issue 1774, p4
The article reports that children's and adults' services directors in Great Britain were divided over whether social work degree students should be able to specialise in either client group before the end of their course. The Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS) in its Social Work Task Force report said that specialisation after one year risked losing the coherence of the profession but there was a strong case for specialisation in the third year.
