This award is based on the content of the first two sections of the All Wales Induction Framework (AWIF) for health and social care workbooks. A social care worker can gain the Principles and Values Award by completing an online course for working with adults or children and young people and successfully completing a short multi-choice question assessment.
On successfully completing the Award, the remaining five workbooks of the AWIF will be unlocked.
The workbooks can be used to support the completion of the AWIF progress logs - Access the progress logs
Successful completion of the Social Care Wales Principles and Values Award can be used by domiciliary care workers to apply for registration with Social Care Wales, or can be used by workers moving to Wales who have a qualification from another UK country.
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.
