The introduction of the new social work degree, which had its first intake in September 2003, provided an important and exciting opportunity to make participation in social work education a reality by requiring that service users and carers be involved in all aspects of course design and delivery, including the selection and assessment of students. This is the annual quality- assurance report (AQAR) to be compiled by the General Social Care Council (GSCC). The report draws on the full range of quality-assurance  (QA) processes undertaken during the reporting year April 2004 to March 2005.
