Do you work in Residential Childcare? CCW wants your views for its short survey

The Care Council for Wales has commissioned a survey to help it understand more about what it means to you to work as a residential child care worker.

The aim of the survey (which can be completed online in no more than 6-7 minutes) is to help the Care Council understand the profile, motivations and aspirations of employees across Wales to help in:
• encouraging people with potential to join this important workforce
• understanding how you regard the qualification
• understanding what makes people leave the sector
• understanding what makes you proud or not to be in this job
• developing appropriate strategies to support workers and managers in residential child care
• facilitating learning and development that will enable you to best meet the needs of children in your care

Ann James, workforce development manager for CCW, said: "We would very much like YOU to participate. The more people who join in the better the survey will be in giving us useful information. The questionnaire is anonymous unless you would like to tell us your contact details."

The questionnaire is being carried out by an independent research company, Vector Research Ltd, which will undertake the data gathering and analysis on CCW's behalf.

  • A link to the survey can be found here. Please complete all questions as individual question responses lead into subsequent sections of the survey.
