KSS for practice supervisors: how Inform can help you

On this page, we have mapped resources on CC Inform Children to the government’s Post-qualifying standard: knowledge and skills statement for child and family practice supervisors (KSS for practice supervisors).

Use the buttons below to go to the resource map for each of the eight parts of the KSS for practice supervisors. There are close links between the parts of the statement so a number of resources are likely to help you with more than one area, but we have tried to highlight the most relevant content for each part.

The map is also available as a printable PDF here.

Note: In January 2022, the DfE announced to local authorities taking part in the National Assessment and Accreditation System (NAAS) that it is ending the current process. NAAS assessment centres, which were paused due to ‘Plan B’ Covid measures, will not re-open and there will be no further assessments under NAAS. The department says it is committed to embedding assessment and accreditation based on the post-qualifying standards (knowledge and skills statements) and will develop a new approach and delivery model for assessment and accreditation, that may make greater use of digital technology rather than assessment centres. It expects the new model to be in place by the end of 2022. Resources on CC Inform will continue to be updated when more information is available.

Accredited child and family practitioner and practice supervisor status will continue to be recognised, and contribute to evidence of CPD for Social Work England. Social workers with further questions about what the change in process means for them should consult their NAAS lead.

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