Supporting you and your staff to be NAAS ready

Learning and adapting from the past 15 months we have looked to complimenting our existing training with the introduction of our new virtual online learning platform.  We have developed two new courses for social workers endorsed to undertake their NAAS assessments.

The national assessment and accreditation system (NAAS) enables child and family social workers to develop skills and knowledge to improve outcomes for children and families.

NAAS aims to:

  • provide social workers with a better understanding of their current level of knowledge and skill and highlight areas for further development
  • support employers to raise the national standard and consistency of practice and improve outcomes for children and families
  • ensure employers better understand their workforce development needs through the practice endorsement processes including supervision, performance management and learning and development

Virtual learning on the go….
