Wales is consulting on a new employer assessment model that puts the main responsibility for assuring the competence of workers on the employer.
The Social Care Wales consultation also looks to make registration simpler, by allowing social care workers to register earlier, as well as halving the number of hours of continuous professional development (CPD) for registration (to 45). from social care workers to maintain their registration.
The new system of registration aims to put more emphasis on practical experience, and less on formal learning.
For more information, view the consultation online and watch the webinar at 10am on 15 February.
The consultation is open for six weeks from 8 February, and will close at 5pm, 22 March 2022.
