ASC-WDS update from Skills for Care

Skills for Care have issued an update detailing some recent additions to the Adult Social Care Workforce Dataset (ASC-WDS)

Parent organisations (those organisations who have subsidiaries on their ASC-WDS accounts) can now download a parent Workforce Development Fund (WDF) report which quickly identifies whether they are eligible to access funding or where they need to add/update data.

Skills for Care have just released the first parts of a new Training and Qualifications section. This functionality has been widely requested by users and developed with their input.

Within this section users can now:

  • Access a summary view of their staff’s training and qualifications
  • Quickly identify which staff have training that has expired or will soon expire
  • Access each staff member’s training and qualifications record
  • Update staff training

In addition, Skills for Care are working on a download report that covers all users’ training and qualifications data. They are also working on functionality for larger organisations (parent accounts) to link to their workplaces.

They have recorded a few short video clips to show different elements of ASC-WDS, including running the WDF report. The clips don’t have audio but have a narrative which works alongside them. Look out for these in the New Year.
