Description:
In May 1990, following an approach from a community group, University College Galway began investigating the possibility of providing an accredited course for Social Care Workers. A survey of Social Care Workers and their employers was conducted in 1992. Following the positive findings of this survey and with financial assistance from the E.U. Initiative New Opportunities for Women (NOW), the first cycle of the Certificate I Diploma in Social Care commenced in September 1993. The Certificate I Diploma in Social Care is provided under the auspices of the Department of Health Promotion, and Adult and Continuing Education. The Social Care Team responsible for the delivery of the course has been: Director - Orla O'Donovan and Course Tutors - Genevieve Becker, Terry Connors, Ann O'Kelly and Catherine Me Nelis. In 1993 the course was offered at centres in Ennis, Galway and Sligo, thus covering the three western health board areas. Two further classes were added in Galway and Roscommon in October 1994, bringing the total number of students undertaking the course to 136. It was at this stage with a proven demand for social care training that it was decided to host a conference which would explore preferences, requirements and possibilities for the training and accreditation of experienced Social Care Workers. This conference supported also by the E.U. NOW initiative was held in the Caimes Theatre, University College Galway on December 3rd 1994. Contributions to the conference came from those involved in the delivery of social care training in the Netherlands as well as in Ireland, from the employers of Social Care Workers, and from the Carers themselves. I am grateful to each of these contributors for their actual presentation on the day
