Employers can claim funding to support a newly qualified social worker (NQSW) through the Assessed and Supported Year of Employment (ASYE) programme and apply for ASYE certification.
Your NQSW(s) will need to complete a self-assessment against the child and family post qualifying standards. The assessment form (provided by the employer) will identify learning needs for the year which will inform their professional development plans.
To be able to offer the funding, we work with the Department for Education (DfE).
Submitting the action plan for continuous development for child and family ASYE
If you're the primary contact responsible for managing the child and family ASYE funding application for your organisation, you'll have access to the funding platform. To submit the action plan, you must log into the platform. Once logged in, you’ll see that you can start a new application for action plan for continuous development 2023/24. Press the blue start button to be taken to the online form version of the action plan.
The online version mirrors the information in the Word version of the action plan, so if you’ve already filled this in, you can copy and paste the information into the online version.
Please make sure you’ve completed and submitted your action plan by 31 March 2024 to ensure that you receive your funding. If it’s not submitted, you’ll be in breach of the terms and conditions outlined in the ASYE grant letter.
The online form is easy to navigate and submit but if you have any questions or difficulties in filling in the action plan in the funding platform, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ve been working hard to improve the platform that is used to manage the disbursement of the ASYE child and family funding, and we’re delighted that this is now live and available to use.
Access the new ASYE child and family platform
Registrations are now open to apply for funding for ASYE child and family NQSWs for 2023-24 and although the platform you use to apply for the funding has changed, the data that we collect has not.
Responding to extensive user research, we've improved the overall experience to make it easier for you to access funding and manage your NQSWs.
If you have any questions, comments or feedback about the new platform, please email email@example.com
Certificates will be issued to employers for NQSWs that have started from 1 April 2020 onwards. To claim a certificate, employers need to update the NQSW record on the funding platform with the date of completion of the ASYE.
