Welcome to the Australian College of Social Work.
The Australian College of Social Work has been set up within the AASW to recognise and promote advanced social work practice. Following a period of reflection and review in which the College was temporarily closed to new members, we have now reopened for membership on October 1, 2013.
The college was set up within the AASW to recognise and promote advanced social work practice and provide leadership in practice excellence. The college recognises and acknowledges the highest professional standards and qualifications that social workers offer and promotes social work excellence and expertise. We are committed to providing leadership in this first development phase of the College and to its goals for Australian social work into the future.
Membership of the ACSW signifies that a social worker is recognised by their peers as having achieved advanced professional knowledge and skills.
