The Principles and Values Award has been launched to provide an alternative way to register for domiciliary care workers who are new to their role and don’t yet have a qualification.
This route to register is especially designed for those who might struggle to meet registration requirements because they were part-time, didn’t yet have a qualification and had not worked in domiciliary care for three of the past five years.
The a worker can gain the Award by successfully completing a short online course, which is based on the first two sections of the all-Wales induction framework and an assessment.
Domiciliary care workers who need to complete the online course and assessment will need to be invited by their manager via e-mail.
For workers who already have a qualification Level 2 or 3 in health and social care (Diploma, QCF or NVQ) or equivalent.
For workers who have worked for three of the past five years in a domiciliary care worker role but have no recognised qualification. Managers will assess workers against the required competencies and provide a signed declaration to confirm your competence as a lawful, safe and effective practitioner.
