Social Care Induction Framework for Wales

The Social Care Induction Framework for Wales (Induction Framework) has been designed to provide a structured start for workers in the first 12 weeks of employment, which will help ensure that they are then safe to leave alone with responsibility for the individuals they support.

Training Programme Overview

The Social Care Induction Framework is mapped to the Care Council for Wales Code of Practice for Social Care Workers (Code of Practice), which describes the standards of professional conduct and practice required of social care workers as they go about their daily work. This code reflects existing good practice, and must be complied with by all workers.

The induction process will help managers to meet their employer's responsibility to promote the Code of Practice, and to provide training and development opportunities to enable social care workers to strengthen and develop their skills and knowledge.

In particular, it will help managers to meet employer's code 3.1:

"providing induction, training and development opportunities to help social care workers do their jobs effectively and prepare for new and changing roles and responsibilities".
