The Social Work Reform Board (SWRB) has agreed a set of recommendations on the best ways to select the right candidates onto the social work degree. These recommendations which were developed in consultation with many stakeholders1are now available for higher education institutions (HEIs) to use and adapt to their own procedures. They have been passed to the College and are outlined on the College website2. This guidance provides detailed advice on each of the recommendations inthe broader context of higher education (HE) remits and responsibilities, the Health Professions Council (HPC) standards on admissions procedures3,and equalities duties. This guidance was written by Cath Holmstrom, University of Sussex,with assistancefrom members of the SWRB 'Calibre of Entrants' work stream and reference group and was funded by the Higher Education Academy's Subject Centre for Social Policy and Social Work, University of Southampton.
