3 The frequencies stipulated in this standard assume staff are in full-time employment. There may need to be adjustment where staff are employed part-time.

4Training and development days are time spent on induction, training or other work related development activities such as reading, research, AYE support and development groups. The activities should relate to the PDP. The 10 training and development days can be broken down into the equivalent hours (75 hours) and applied as appropriate to the development activity.

5This form should be signed by a senior manager who has been designated by their organisation. Organisations employing newly qualified social workers must nominate a designated person/s to confirm completion of the AYE and must provide the NISCC with sample signatures (see Proforma AYE 5). The designated person should understand the standards a newly qualified social worker is expected to meet and be in a position to satisfy him/herself that these standards have been met.
