An appeal has gone out for social workers who successfully completed their assessed and supported year in employment last year but have not received their certificate for doing so.
Daisy Bogg Consultancy (DBC), which issues the certificates on behalf of the government, is asking social workers or employers to contact it if they or their staff have not been given their ASYE certificate.
Some staff have not been able to receive their certificate because of the gap between the closure of the College of Social Work and DBC taking on the contract to provide certificates. The practitioners affected completed their ASYE between June and December 2015.
“We would like to hear from any employers who know of such candidates, or any individual candidates who have now left the employ of the organisation where they completed their ASYE and who would like to receive a certificate,” said a spokesperson for DBC. “Subject to verification from the employing organisation that the certificate is warranted, we will do our best to ensure that all those who should expect their certificate of successful completion are able to receive one.”
If you have information, you should contact DBC by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the employing organisation, the social worker concerned, their contact information (where known), and the date they completed the ASYE.
