All registered social workers in England must renew their professional registration with Social Work England by 30 November 2020. They are also required to record one piece of CPD as part of the renewal process. We would like to remind social worker members to activate their online account with SWE, record CPD and prepare for the registration renewal process.

To renew registration with SWE and to continue to practise as a social worker, all socialĀ  workers must:

  • Activate an online account at and ensure that their contact details are up to date. This can be done by following the instructions to transfer from the HCPC during the online set up.
  • Once logged into their online account, social workers can record CPD. At least one piece of CPD must be recorded before 30 November 2020. Submitting CPD through the online account is a requisite part of the renewal process.
