Do you work as a Personal Assistant in Rhondda Cynon Taff?


The Cwm Taff social care VQ team has designed an induction programme for direct care staff who are brand new to working in the social care setting, staff moving to a new service, or staff who may have been working in a social care setting for some time without any formal training.


The team welcome Personal Assistants to join this learning journey and recognise their professional role in social care.


The aim is to equip new workers in social care with the knowledge required for undertaking their duties. It is expected that most staff will complete every session in the same programme. All sessions encompass the Social Services and Wellbeing Act (Wales) 2014, and support staff to complete the All-Wales Induction Framework (AWIF) and the Core qualification.
