The All Wales induction framework for health and social care is designed for social care workers and healthcare support workers. It covers care and support for adults, and children and young people. It provides a structure for a common induction in health and social care across Wales and outlines the knowledge and skills new workers need to gain in the first six months of employment.
All employers have a responsibility to make sure their new workers receive a suitable induction using this induction framework. Workers may be new to the role, organisation or sector.
It is also expected that all new workers will receive and be aware of Residential child care worker: practice guidance for residential child care workers registered with Social Care Wales.
