Michael Gove urges social workers to set up game

November 13, 2013 10:11 am

Education Secretary Michael Gove used a speech on child protection to argue that all young people should get the same opportunities as he received. Gove paid tribute to the social workers who “transformed” his life by placing him with loving adoptive parents when he was a baby. However, he called on the profession to drive up standards and strip out outdated dogma from its approach to vulnerable children. He will also signal plans for an overhaul of social workers’ training.
