Department for Child Protection (DCP) - Proposed Multidisciplinary Approach to Recruitment to Child Protection (Broadening Acceptable Qualifications)

16 May 2018

The Public Service Association (PSA) thanks members for providing feedback in relation to this issue. The PSA provided a response to Chief Executive of DCP, Cathy Taylor, on 11 May 2018 based on your feedback. The PSA’s letter of response can be found here.

As part of this response, the PSA has asked that further information be provided to members on how DCP expects these employees will fit into teams, what the expected contributions and outcomes of these roles will be, and how they will complement the work of Social Workers.

The PSA will update members further when a response is received from DCP.
