Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) 

By Gemma Raw

It can be daunting taking the leap from studying social work to be a full time newly qualified social worker. The Department for Education (DfE) recognises this. That’s why it continues to fund the child and family Assessed and Supported Year in Employment (ASYE) programme. Skills for Care has overall responsibility for managing the programme on behalf of DfE. It also supports the adults ASYE programme on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care. Whether you are in children’s or adults social work, the one year, employer-led induction programme provides support to all newly qualified social workers (NQSWs).

The programme gives NQSWs the opportunity to consolidate their degree learning, develop capability and strengthen their professional confidence. Skills for Care’s aim is to create a nationally consistent understanding of what a social worker should know and be able to do at the end of their first year in employment.
