How to use the All Wales Induction Framework -
advice for workers
From 1 March 2023:
- we’ll no longer accept new sign ups to the All Wales induction framework website
- managers won’t be able to invite workers to create an account on the site
- workers won’t be able to create an account and they’ll need to visit our website if they want to complete the induction workbooks.
If you already have an account, you can continue to use it until the site closes on 1 October 2023. You won’t be able to make any changes to workbooks after this date.
What is the All-Wales Induction Framework?
The All-Wales induction framework for health and social care (AWIF) is a workbook based course which covers the principles, values, knowledge and skills workers need to carry out their role competently.
There are seven sections to the AWIF, each section has a progress log and a workbook to support the worker in their learning.
This website can be used to complete digital copies of the workbooks. More information about the AWIF including the process logs can be found on the Social Care Wales website.
I need to register can I use the AWIF or its principles and values section certificate as evidence?
No, this changed on 1 October 2022. Social Care Wales no longer accepts these certificates to register.
You can however still use any work you have completed in the workbooks as evidence for your employer assessment application to register.
Employers can now confirm their workers applications to register after assessing their understanding against a list of areas. This is completed as part of the application that you would make to register and does not require an action on this website. To find our more about this please visit the Social Care Wales website.
Once logged please click continue to access the workbooks.
Click view to see the sections of any workbook. If you are completing the workbook online, you need to work through each section providing the required information ensuring you click the ‘Save Progress’ button, before continuing to the next section.
Once you have completed all sections of your workbook you will need to click submit to send it to your manager to evaluate.
We recognise that some workers may have already completed parts of a paper workbook. If you and your manager are in agreement that you have already completed the workbook offline, to reach the assessment you will need to add some text for example ‘completed offline’ to each box, ensuring you click ‘Save Progress’ followed by continue – you must do this for each box in every section of your workbook. It might be easier to copy and paste this text into each section.
Once your sections are saved, they will change from incomplete to complete on the menu.
When all sections of a workbook are complete you must click submit on the main workbook menu for the work to be sent to your manager to review. This will lock your workbook and give your manager the opportunity to approve or reject the workbook in their account.
Once you have passed a section this will become read only, meaning you can see your work and your manager comments but no longer make any changes to that section. Any rejected section can be reviewed and added to before being resubmitted to your manager to be evaluated again.
Once your manager has approved all sections of the workbook they are complete.
