All Wales Induction Framework

Course Overview

This new induction framework is designed for social care workers and healthcare support workers. It covers care and support for adults, and children and young people. It provides a structure for a common induction in health and social care across Wales and outlines the knowledge and skills new workers need to gain in the first six months of employment. 

The goal is to provide clear evidence to employers, patients and people who receive care and support that you have been trained to a specific set of standards.

To help put the induction framework into practice and to support new workers generate some of the evidence needed to achieve the ‘core’ qualification, workbooks have been developed for each section of the framework. The workbooks are made up of a number of learning activities using case studies, films and written questions to support learning. Each module is concluded with a knowledgecheck assessment.
