The schedule below of key assessment outcomes will assist in the construction of the professional development plan, the structure of the evidence and the final assessment. It may be helpful to consider the relationship between the knowledge and skills statement (KSS) and the professional capabilities framework (PCF) as follows.

  • The KSS provides an overall context that describes the role and expectations of the social worker in adult services
  • The KSS is designed to build upon and enhance the PCF, which remains the overarching standards framework applicable to all social workers in whatever role or setting
  • All social workers should be able to demonstrate knowledge of all aspects of the KSS and development in those aspects which are relevant to the service setting
  • The PCF details the level expected of the NQSW at the end of the ASYE
  • All social workers need to demonstrate progression; the ASYE and KSS level descriptors arethe minimum requirement at the end of ASYE.
