About the Standards in Social Work Education
The Standards in Social Work Education (SiSWE) are the national standards all students qualifying in social work in Scotland are required to meet. We revised the SiSWE in 2018 following consultation with a wide range of stakeholders. From 2020 all universities providing social work programmes will be delivering courses based on the revised standards.
You can watch our video introduction to the revised standards which gives an overview of our website too.
