Munro: Munro: college will help profession take control of improving performance
Professor Eileen Munro will take up the post of transitional chair for The College of Social Work next month.
Munro, who led a government-commissioned report into child protection, will chair the college’s children’s faculty for one year from March.
Professor Corinne May-Chahal, interim co-chair of the college, said: “We are extremely pleased that Professor Munro is taking up the role of transitional chair for our children’s faculty at this formative time.
“The Munro review recommended wide-ranging changes to the provision of child social care that cut across government, local agencies and social work.
“We look forward to working with Professor Munro to help put in place the reforms needed to provide high-quality child protection that all professionals working in this challenging area want to see.”
Munro, who is professor of social policy at the London School of Economics, said the college will help the profession take control of improving performance.
“The college will play a crucial role in enabling social workers to take control of our own standards of excellence, to enhance our level of expertise in helping children and families, and in supporting those on the front line to exercise their professional judgement to safeguard children,” she said.
