In 2015 the Care Council commissioned IPC to develop five core training modules to support implementation of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.  Each module contains material at two levels:

  • Level A material: awareness raising material for the wider workforce. As a minimum each module contains a summary Word document and a PowerPoint overview.
  • Level B material: in-depth material directed at those whose roles are most affected. Each module contains a Word training module, associated handouts and a PowerPoint presentation.

Additional supporting documents such as case studies and exercises are also provided to support each module.

Assessing and meeting individual needs
Level A materials in this module are designed to offer an overview of Parts 3 (Assessing the Needs of Individuals) and 4 (Meeting Needs) of the Act, as well as relevant aspects of Parts 5 (Charging and Financial Assessment) and 11 (Adults and Children in the Secure Estate).  They include summaries of the key messages and are suitable for all roles across the sector to give them an overview of the key changes.

The more detailed Level B learning materials are for those whose roles are most affected by the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act. They are designed to help them implement the change.

Supporting materials are also provided to support the Assessing and Meeting Individual Needs training module: case studies, exercises and handouts
