How Inform can help you meet the KSS standards

Woman talking to man

This page is about the practitioner level statement. Looking for information on the KSS for practice supervisors? Please click here.


Inform Children’s practice guides, interactive learning tools, research reviews and legal content are ideal for newly qualified social workers in their ASYE, practitioners seeking accreditation, and anyone else wanting to develop and evidence their knowledge and skills against the government’s Post-qualifying standard: Knowledge and Skills Statement for Child and Family Practitioners (KSS).

On this page, we have mapped each part of the statement to the most relevant CC Inform resources to help you meet each point. The map is updated periodically as new resources are published. Click on the title or picture for the part you’re interested in to go to the resource map for that part of the statement. The map is also available in printable PDF form here.

Further resources

Note: In January 2022, the DfE announced to local authorities taking part in the National Assessment and Accreditation System (NAAS) that it was ending the current accreditation process. The full details of what is replacing have not yet been announced, although the government has said the ‘early career famework’ proposed in its response to the care review Stable Homes, Built on Love will form part of this. The consultation on Stable Homes, Built on Love closed on 11 May 2023 and the outcomes have not yet been published; this page and other relevant content on CC Inform will be updated when that happens.

If you have any suggestions for how Community Care Inform can help you further with the standards and accreditation, please get in touch.
