ASWB’s Path to Licensure program is designed to bring the worlds of education and regulation together in the classroom to strengthen student and faculty knowledge of professional regulation and its important connection to public protection and social work values and ethics.

Through participation in Path to Licensure, Educators will be supported in their efforts to build a bridge to understanding so that professional regulation is embraced as an essential component of the social work profession, just as it is embraced in other health care professions such as medicine and nursing.

The goal of the Path to Licensure program is to unify social workers in the education, regulation, and practice arenas in helping social work students transition successfully to professional practice. ASWB will partner with CSWE-accredited social work programs to help them customize the Path to Licensure program to meet their own teaching needs.
