Getting in on the Act - new information and learning hub from Care Council for Wales

Care Council for Wales has launched a new information and learning hub to support the full implementation of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act.

Under the banner "Getting in on the Act", the Information and Learning Hub has been designed to provide a 'one-stop-shop' for the wide range of resources that will be produced as part of this initiative. Over time, the Hub will include training materials in different formats to help social care professionals implement the legislation in their day-to-day work.

The Hub will be updated regularly with new information and learning materials. Among the first resources on the Hub is a pack, with accompanying presentation, to introduce the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act and raise awareness of what it means for those working in social care, healthcare and wider services. The pack draws on a range of materials developed across Wales and is designed to support the delivery of a two to three-hour workshop. It aims to provide an overview of the Act, pave the way for implementing the legislation and establish a foundation for more in-depth and specialist training that people might need.

In July 2015, an e-learning version of the introduction and awareness pack will be available, which will allow members of the workforce to complete the training online in an interactive way. Further resources will be added as training needs for specific groups become clearer and in the autumn, there will be more in-depth materials for those whose roles are directly affected by the Act.

The website also has regular news bulletins, updates and details of events related to the implementation of the Act http://www.ccwales.org.uk/getting-in-on-the-act-hub/.
