Assessing experienced staff

‘For staff joining from other adult social care services, you can use the self assessment tool. Bear in mind that staff will need to produce evidence for their achievements – this can be by certificate or workbook, backed up by observation or professional discussion. Managers need to introduce the self assessment in a culture of support and as part of a development plan to encourage staff to be honest about their competence and confidence.’
