Dorset County Council requires all newly qualified Social Workers to undertake the assessed and supported year in employment (ASYE) and meet the expected standards during the ASYE period.

The ASYE arrangements should normally apply to the appointment of all newly qualified Social Workers who qualified after September 2012 unless they can demonstrate that they already fully meet the standards laid out in the professional capabilities framework (PCF).

Please note Dorset County Council does not accept CV's in place of an application form as we require the same range of information from all our candidates.
