Social Care Wales publish joint guidance with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) to help with social workers’ development after qualifying
The first three years in practice document provides a framework to support newly-qualified social workers.
In recognition of how important it is that newly qualified social workers make a smooth transition from student to confident and competent practitioners, this jointly issued guidance provides a framework for social work employers to develop their own model of support for the first three years of a social worker’s professional practice.
To support employers and social workers to further develop the knowledge, skills and attributes gained through qualifying training the guidance consists of the four following sections:
- Growing in competence and confidence
- Consolidation programme
- Renewing registration
The full guidance can be found on the Social Care Wales website (External link)
