No More Blame Game, makes a total of 14 recommendations, all to be considered for adoption as Conservative Party policy. Other recommendations include the creation of a newly-qualified social worker status to help support and retain inexperienced social workers, which would include post-qualifying study and training time. The commission would also like the UK to follow New Zealand's example and appoint a chief social worker to work across government departments as well as with Unison, the British Association of Social Workers, other representative bodies and the media. It also calls for adoption targets to be phased out and a review of the length and content of social work degree courses. (Edited publisher abstract)
