‘ The involvement of service users and carers should be integral throughout in that they have the opportunity both to access the qualifications as candidates and be influential within all stages of the design, development, evaluation and ongoing monitoring.’ (SiESWE, 2005a, p.43).
“ We think the most important qualities for social service workers are anti-discriminatory values, respectful attitudes and very good personal communication skills. Users and carers should be involved in training workers to make sure people understand why this is important.”
