Social Care Wales Principles and Values Award

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.
