A senior manager oversees other managers and is responsible for key organisational programmes such as the ASYE. They may be the principal social worker for the organisation. The programme will benefit from the active support and involvement of senior managers. This level of support should impact all those involved in the ASYE programme and should mirror in your organisational ASYE documents, policies and procedures.
Principal social workers
Principal social workers may have responsibility for the oversight and quality assurance of your programme and the welfare of all those involved in the programme.
ASYE portal administration
The assessor or a senior manager will be the lead name for the 大象传媒 portal. The portal administrator role includes:
- keep contact details up to date
- log all NQSWs starting and completing their ASYE in your service
- update the status of the NQSW i.e. paused/withdrawn from their ASYE
- claim ASYE funding and request ASYE certificates
Managing the ASYE programme
You may be responsible for managing the ASYE programme in your service. There may be separate ASYE programmes for child and family and adult services in your organisation.
The two programmes are now the same - it may be beneficial if your two programmes co-deliver either the entire ASYE programme or parts of it. This single approach will encourage joint working and expand the learning and development opportunities.

Employers can use the NEC to ensure their programme is a successful one. It also includes specific areas that are one step beyond the NEC, known as NEC+. The evaluation criteria will evolve where evidence from the sector indicates that they should be developed further.
