One of the main tasks of the Consortium is the organisation of professional social work training in the West of Scotland. This is via the Diploma in Social Work (DipSW) Programme delivered by the Consortium partnership. Much of the site is devoted to setting out the Programme's requirements and regulations, including assessment procedures, information on placements and arrangements for Advanced Entry to the Programme.
