Update on the transfer of data from NMDS-SC to the new Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS)

The Skills for Care WDF team have provided the following update on the changes from NMDS-SC to ASC-WDS:

  • At 5.30pm on Thursday 18th July 2019 the NMDS-SC will be closed and you will not be able to access your NMDS-SC accounts after that date
  • Following the closure of NMDS-SC, Skills for Care will start migrating everyone’s data into the new ASC-WDS
  • They will email account holders during the week commencing Monday 5th August 2019 to advise that ASC-WDS accounts are ready to be accessed and you will be able to log on using your existing user name and password
  • Once you can access your ASC-WDS account you will be able to check if you have achieved 90% completion and are eligible to claim WDF in 2019/20
  • To make sure you have all the required information to update, you can find the information about ASC Workforce Data Set requirements here

What You Need to Do

  • You can still access your NMDS-SC account up to 18 July and we would encourage you to update your data now and check if you are eligible to claim WDF before the data migration happens.  You will then be ready to start claiming WDF at the earliest opportunity
  • Alternatively, you can wait until you receive an email from Skills for Care in August advising that your data has been migrated to ASC-WDS and then update your data and check if you have met the 90% eligibility criteria for claiming WDF
