What social workers need to know about fitness to practice hearings

As a regulated profession, social work has processes to ensure that practitioners maintain confidence in the services they provide and in the profession as a whole. Fitness to practice investigations and hearings form part of this regulatory oversight. In this webinar, legal expert Margaret Obi will draw on her experience as a legal adviser on fitness to practise hearings to shed light on this often overlooked aspect of professional regulation. 

Margaret Obi was appointed as a Deputy High Court Judge in 2018, sitting in the then Queen's Bench Division, Royal Courts of Justice in London. Her professional background is as a criminal defence solicitor, and she has advised legal teams in war crimes cases at the International Criminal Court, various governments on issues relating to human rights, and Legal 500 firms in cases involving serious fraud and terrorism offences. She also sits as a legal adviser on fitness to practise hearings for various bodies including Social Work England.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
