Isabelle Trowler

Since qualifying as a social worker in 1996, Isabelle has worked within the voluntary, statutory and private sectors both in education and social care settings, in a variety of practice and senior leadership roles.

She co-designed a new model of delivering child and family social work which has had an enduring influence on the children’s social care practice system across the UK and internationally. Since taking up her current role as Chief Social Worker for England (Children & Families) in 2013, Isabelle has been instrumental in the introduction of national practice standards and post-qualification accreditation, the development of teaching partnerships and the creation of a new regulator: Social Work England. She has also played a central part in the introduction of a new What Work’s Centre for Children’s Social Care, the sector-led improvement programme “Partners in Practice”, and the roll-out of the Department of Education’s Innovation Programme.
