Is the ASYE mandatory for all newly qualified social workers? Is the ASYE mandatory for all newly qualified social workers? Presentation Transcript

  • Is The ASYE Mandatory? No, it is not mandatory; however some local authorities are requesting that all of their NQSW hold the certificate. Skills for Care state that is not linked to the registration criteria of the HCPC for re-registration as a social worker
  • What is the status of the ASYE? It is an employer led qualification which meets the criteria of the PCF (Performance Capability Framework) as outlined by the College Of Social Work
  • Why are some locum social workers being asked to complete the ASYE? As it is employer led some local authorities have made the decision that as part of their workforce standards all NQSW will hold the ASYE
  • What does the College of Social Work provide as part of the ASYE? TCSW certifies the portfolio
  • What are the benefits of social workers completing the ASYE? A NQSW gets up to speed quicker than one who does not have regular ongoing supervision with clear career progression and guidance in their first year of Practice
  • How does completing the ASYE support HCPC registration? The clear criteria outlined by the ASYE is in keeping with the standards set by the HCPC for CPD requirements
  • Is the Bursary only available to permanent NQSW? The ASYE can be used in all settings including the voluntary, private and independent sectors. The role in which the NQSW is employed needs to include work that is of a sufficient level and kind to meet the expectations of all nine domains of the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) at ASYE level.
  • What if the bursary is not applied for or agreed? The Skills for Care states that the completion of the ASYE is not dependent on the bursary being made available but is dependent on the worker reaching and evidencing the standard of completion laid out in the framework of the ASYE and certified by TCSW
  • Is the ASYE just for children’s social workers? The scheme is for all social workers practicing in all settings
  • What qualifications does the Assessor need to have? The Assessor should be a registered social worker, no other qualification is necessary
  • What happens if someone fails the ASYE? The programme is not linked to a license to practice as a social worker. However failing the scheme is likely to impact on future employment prospects. If taken seriously most social workers will have plenty of warning about their capabilities and can make the adjustments required to be a professional social worker and pass the programme
  • Locum Newly Qualified Social Workers can apply for the ASYE programme at
