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 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/.
