What is the Induction Framework for Social Care Managers?
The All Wales Induction Framework for Social Care Managers (Induction Framework) is a set of standards taken from the content of the Level 5 Leadership and Management of Health and Social Care qualification.
It sets out knowledge and practice which should be demonstrated over time, by social care managers who are new to their role.
Who should complete the Induction Framework and how long should it take?
Social care managers who are new to post. It should be completed by all social care managers who are new to post as a general induction to their role. If you are an experienced or qualified manager, we would expect you to already have some evidence of knowledge and practice through completion of your qualification or through prior employment, whereas some of you may have less experience or be taking your qualification at the same time. We recommend completion within 12 months of start date in a new role for all managers, this will provide an opportunity to embed your learning in practice and update knowledge of legislative frameworks, and evidence informed practice and specialist areas
