1. Introduction 1.1 Introduction to the AYE 1.1.1 The Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC) was established in October 2001 to protect people who use social care services and to raise standards in social care training and practice. NISCC achieves this by promoting workforce development and by registering and regulating the social care workforce. This responsibility extends to ensuring that standards are met and that social workers at each stage in their career are equipped with the appropriate knowledge, skills and values to enable them to meet the needs of service users. 1.1.2 The reform of social work education in 2004 incorporated the introduction of the Degree in Social Work (DSW). It also included all newly qualified social workers (NQSWs) undertaking an assessed year in employment (AYE), linked to registration with NISCC. 1.1.3 Government policy (Circular HSS (SSI) AYE 1/2005) required that from 1 April 2006 all NQSWs must successfully complete the AYE in compliance with the NISCC (Registration) Rules 2004: Part II 7 1 . The Circular has been revised and should be read alongside this guidance (Circular HSS (OSS) AYE 2/2015) (Appendix 2).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
