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.

Looked after and accommodated children
The Level A materials are designed to give an overview of Part 6 of the Act  - Looked After and Accommodated Children, as well as relevant aspects of Part 11 relating to children and young people in prison, youth detention or bail accommodation.  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. These are designed to help them implement the change.

Case studies, handouts and scenarios are provided to support the Looked After and Accommodated Children training module.
