NQSWs who registered for the ASYE in adult services before 1 April 2015 must refer to the previous ASYE structure (2012-2015). For more information please use the links below:
Information relevant to the ASYE for child and family services will be available in due course.
This information supports voluntary and private (independent) sector employers interested in supporting newly qualified social workers (NQSWs) to complete the ASYE.
Scenarios and a case study demonstrate the range of work that social workers perform in the independent sector and how the ASYE can be managed. All registered social workers are eligible for the ASYE, including those who are employed in positions that may not be classed as “social work” or have the term “social worker” within their title. So long as the role includes work of a sufficient complexity and type to meet the requirements of the PCF at ASYE level, an NQSW should be encouraged to participate.
This information should encourage and support independent sector employers and their NQSWs to engage with the ASYE. It provides an opportunity to contribute towards developing a vibrant, well qualified workforce, equipped to deliver high quality social care.
