Newly qualified social worker / Assessed and supported year in employment
The Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) is designed to help newly qualified social workers develop their skills, knowledge and capability, and strengthen their professional confidence. It provides them with access to regular and focused support during their first year of employment in social work. It has replaced the original Newly Qualified Social Worker (NQSW) Outcomes Statements.
The Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF), developed by The College of Social Work, outlines exactly what skills, knowledge and capabilities newly qualified social workers are expected to attain during the ASYE.
SCIE is updating our list of resources to support social workers in the ASYE. In the meantime, the following resources, which are grouped according to the original Newly Qualified Social Worker Outcomes Statements, will be useful for newly qualified social workers.
