New Welsh induction framework e-learning launched

Published on April 3rd, 2018

EdgeWorks™ Care Academy is pleased to announce the launch of its All Wales induction framework for health and social care (adults) e-learning.

It can be used to structure the induction process or to inform your current induction programme. The statutory guidance for Service Regulations 36 states;

Service providers ensure they have an induction programme that equips all new staff to be confident in their roles and practice and enables them to make a positive contribution to the wellbeing of individuals using the service.

All employers have a responsibility to make sure their new workers receive a suitable induction using this induction framework. This framework will help you and the responsible individuals show that workers are completing a robust, structured induction to make sure that regulatory requirement and contracting monitoring are met.

Full details are available in our e-learning portfolio and topics include:

  • Section 1 Principles and values of health and social care (adults).
  • Section 3 Health and well-being (adults).
  • Section 5 Professional practice as a health and social care worker.
  • Section 6 Safeguarding individuals.
  • Section 7 Health and safety in health and social care.

Section 5 does not cover all the underpinning knowledge. Additional training may be required to meet requirements and is dependent on an individual’s role/work environment.

The underpinning knowledge includes optional screening assessment allows individuals who can demonstrate prior knowledge to “fast
track” their completion of the learning and assessments.

To discuss the induction framework or to find out how Care Academy can help your organisation please contact us directly on 0330 995 0840 or use our online form.
