Most large employers offer ASYE as part of the probationary period, and this module is designed to their training and development programmes.

This module enables newly qualified social workers (NQSWs) during their assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE), to consolidate their social work knowledge, skills and values in their specialist area of practice. It will enable them to critically reflect on and review their development to facilitate high-quality practice and service delivery. It will contribute to students’ understanding and achievement of the PCF at ASYE level and the KSS.

Course content

  • Working within the complexities of social work practice, such as multi-agency working, promoting welfare and safeguarding
  • Evidence-based practice and research-minded approaches
  • Working with challenging behaviour (from service users and other professionals)
