Communities of Practice for Adult Residential Care
Are you passionate about making a difference to the lives of older people who live in residential care homes?
The Care Council and the Western Bay Social Care in Partnership (SCIP) are working together to pilot a community of practice for adult residential care managers and practitioners across Bridgend, Swansea and Neath-Port Talbot.
We are holding an event on the 24th September at Baglan Church from 9.30 – 1pm to explore how we can work in partnership with you to take this forward.

Registration as an Adult Care Home Manager
The Rules for Registration as an Adult Care Home Manager have been amended. From 16 February 2015, First Level Registered Nurses will be able to apply to register with the Care Council as an Adult Care Home Manager if they hold either the NVQ level 4 in Management or the Level 5 QCF Diploma in Leadership and Management (as long as these have been obtained whilst working in a health or care setting).
The decision to change the Rules for Registration has been made in response to a recognition of the increasing nursing needs of those living in Care Homes.
This is an interim measure whilst the Care Home Steering Group established by the Health Minister determines a vision for the Care Home sector and any implications this may have for the future workforce in Wales.
Profiles of the registered workforce
Each year the Care Council publishes a statistical profile of each of the registration roles with mandatory registration in Wales.
Supervising and Appraising Well
The Supervising and Appraising Well booklet has been produced to provide practical guidance, clarity, ideas and examples for everyone responsible for carrying out supervision and appraisal with social care workers.
