Skills for Care: new interactive learning and Development guide

Skills for Care have launched a new guide which aims to provide managers with a starting point to consider the best ways to develop their workforce and sustain learning.

You can access the new guide here.

The new interactive guide highlights the importance and benefits of learning and development opportunities and how to identify the needs of your services. It introduces you to apprenticeships and qualifications, other learning opportunities and how to find out what is best suited to your business needs and those of your workforce.

Developed with managers in mind, it aims to answers some of the questions you might have and provides a starting point in how to develop an effective and efficient learning and development strategy for your organisation.

It’s full of hints and tips on how to choose the right approach and full of practical guidance in the delivery and assessment of learning and development opportunities. It provides information on the cost of training and measuring its success along with providing information and ideas on how to keep your workforce up to date.

This new guide replaces both the previous guides: Ongoing Learning & Development in Adult Social Care and Choosing Workforce Learning.
