The Social Work Task Force emphasised the importance of partnerships between employers and HEIs in the design and delivery of good quality training and development for social workers. This paper proposes a partnership framework between employers and educators across the whole spectrum of education and professional development. The prime partnership addressed is that between employers and higher education institutions (HEIs), but the principles can also be extended to partnerships between several HEIs, groups of employers and small clusters of organisations, as these can have a significant contribution to make to the effectiveness of local arrangements for education, professional development and the supply of social workers.
