FOI, Health and Care Professions Council

Dear Ms [Name Removed]

 

Thank you for your email of 13 December 2018, in which you ask for our
policy on student social workers working on child protection cases.

 

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA).

 

We do not regulate students in any of our registered professions and so do
not set express requirements around the kind of work students may
undertake.

 

Our [1]Standards of Education and training, which we use to approve and
monitor approved education programmes, require that “practice-based
learning must take place in an environment that is safe and supportive for
learners and service users” (5.4). If there are concerns about the
policies or procedures of an approved programme including whether they
achieve this standard, these can be raised with us directly. You can find
out about how to do this on our [2]website.

 

If there are any concerns about the conduct of a student, including during
practice placements, these should be raised with their education provider.
Our standards for education and training also require that "there must be
thorough and effective processes in place for ensuring the ongoing
suitability of learners’ conduct, character and health" (3.16).

 

We produce [3]guidance for students on education and training programmes
we approve explaining our standards of conduct, performance and ethics for
registered professionals.

 

The professional body, the [4]British Association of Social Workers
(BASW), may be able to provide more detailed advice.

Dear Health and Care Professions Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Health and Care Professions Council's handling of my FOI request 'Making sure ive read the facts correctly ?'.

I appreciate you replying and you l have been very kind but iam sorry it's not what I've been told. Two jugdes and a barrister said there was no way she should have been near our case. Her and her manager have lied and my kids are in care and they shouldn't be. She didn't have a clue and she's been allowed to get away with it. They have not done anything that they should have. And lies about me I carnt and won ever let them get away with it. Sorry she carnt be allowed to do this to anyone else. Ever !

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

Dear Ms [Name Removed]

 

I write in response to your request for a review of the HCPC’s response to
the freedom of information request you made.

 

Original request

 

Your request dated 13 December 2018 asked for our policy on student social
workers working on child protection cases.

 

We explained that we do not hold the information requested as we do not
regulate students in any of our registered professions and so do not set
express requirements around the kind of work students may undertake.

 

Internal review

 

I have reviewed your request and the HCPC response and I am confirming
that our response is correct.

 

As we do not hold the information you request there is little further I
can add to our original response. We signposted you to various other
places where you may find more information, I am sorry if you found these
of no use but we are unable to assist you further with your enquiry.

 

Review of response

 

Should you wish, you may request that the Information Commissioner reviews
this response. Please contact-
