Free Welsh course for social care workers

Social care workers in Wales can now learn Welsh for free thanks to a new online course.

We’ve created the Camau course in partnership with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and the National Centre for Learning Welsh especially for people working in social care.

It offers bitesize, flexible learning that focuses on the Welsh words and phrases workers are most likely to need when they’re communicating with the people they support. The Mynediad module is suitable for beginners and takes around 60 hours to complete, in three sections of 20 hours. It counts towards registered social care workers’ continuous professional development and everyone who completes it will receive a certificate.

“Using Welsh - even just a few words, can help people feel included and more at ease.”

The Good Work framework

  • supports the development of effective dementia learning and development approaches
  • makes sure dementia care and support is in line with ‘what matters most’ to people with dementia
  • is based on theories of positive psychology.

These theories:

  • focus on meaning and purpose
  • build on strengths rather than address deficits
  • use positive strength-based language that’s central to a strength-based approach.

People are at the heart of the Good Work framework. This means their independence and well-being is vital to the way we work. It also means we should recognise people depend on each other or ‘interdependent’. For example, with family, friends, paid care staff and local communities.

A simple, practical guide that organisations and partnerships can use to put the dementia Good Work framework into practice.
