From 1 March, it won’t be possible to sign-up for a new account on the digital workbooks site for the All Wales induction framework (AWIF) for health and social care, which was previously known as the ‘Principles and values award’.
But managers and workers who already have accounts on the site will still be able to use and make changes to the workbooks until 1 October.
What this means
From 1 March, you won’t be able to:
- create new accounts as a manager
- invite workers to create an account
- create a new account as a worker.
From now until 31 October, if you already have an account on the site, you can download and save any workbooks that have been fully completed and approved so you can use them at a later date.
After 31 October, you’ll no longer have access to your account.
Why is this changing?
We’re closing the site in October because social care workers can no longer use the AWIF as a way to register with us.
Social care workers can now only register if they have the required qualification for their role or if they’ve been assessed by their employer as being suitable to register. Employer assessment allows employers to endorse their workers’ application to register after assessing them against a list of competencies.
We’re developing a new digital resource to support the employer assessment route, which we’re hoping to make available later this year.
