Illinois School Social Work Licensure Exams: A Comparison of State Licensure Agencies
School social work licensure or certification has undergone dramatic policy shifts throughout the United States that have changed the eligibility requirements of the state credentialing agencies and influenced enrollment in school social work licensure education courses. These changes have affected the professional school social work workforce in several ways including a lack of school social work interns entering the trainee workforce and a decrease in the new population of school social workers to replace the previous generation. This article will examine some of the experiences faced by graduate school social workers and compare other state educational agency requirements with those of Illinois. Research and policy implications will be discussed.
