February 19, 2021 at 2:16 PM

From the Social Workers Registration Board

Changes to the Social Workers Registration Act 2003 effective from 27 February 2021 include the introduction of mandatory registration for social workers, protection of the title ‘social worker’, and implementation of a general scope of practice to describe social work practice in Aotearoa New Zealand.

 The General Scope of Practice has been developed as a high-level description of social work in Aotearoa New Zealand. The Scope of Practice applies to practitioners working across the breadth of social work roles. It supports a shared identity for social workers and establishes a common understanding of social work in this country.
