The social care worker of the future will be regulated, registered, better qualified and more valued, according to General Social Care Council chief executive Lynne Berry.

At a conference this week she said the profession was undergoing the most radical changes of its 30-year history with the introduction of a code of conduct, a social care register and a degree course.

The opening of the register last month was a 'milestone' and will ensure social workers will be 'appropriately trained', she added.

'The social care world is changing fast. As well as driving up standards of care, these changes have the potential to increase public confidence in the sector, creating a more trusted and valued workforce of the future.'
