Update on the Development of Future ASWB Social Work Examinations

The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (the College) would like to share an update from the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) as they continue to work on further developing exams for the future of social work.

The ASWB is currently preparing for an in-depth practice analysis, which will create the blueprint for the French and English versions of the social work exams that the College will use when the exams are implemented in 2027. A similar practice analysis will take place to develop the social service work exam which will also be available in French.  

Visit the ASWB website to read about the initiatives being developed.

For more information on the College’s eventual implementation of entry-to-practice exams – including frequently asked questions – please visit our website. Please contact the Communications Department at communications@ocswssw.org for further information.
