Assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE)
The assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE) is a programme that gives newly qualified social workers extra support during their first year of employment. The programme aims to develop their skills, knowledge and professional confidence.
ASYE is open to all newly qualified social workers employed in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
The ASYE programme for social workers who work with children and families is based on the statement of knowledge and skills for child and family social work.
You can find more information about ASYE on the Skills for Care website.
Employers providing the ASYE
The Department for Education provides funding of £2,000 to employers of child and family social workers for each newly qualified social worker they support through ASYE.
This funding is distributed by Skills for Care who also provide tools and events to help employers manage the ASYE programme.
Employers of child and family social workers who wish to register to provide ASYE should email Skills for Care at: childandfamilyASYE@skillsforcare.org.uk
Employers of adult social workers who wish to register to provide ASYE should email Skills for Care at: adultsASYE@skillsforcare.org.uk
