New CPD initiative to launch at social care event

Skills for Care, the adult social care workforce development organisation, will showcase its new continuing professional development (CPD) suite of products at next month's National Children and Adult Services Conference.

The products are designed to help people implement best practice in continuous professional development of workers within their own organisations, and also help registered social care workers to meet the Post Registration Teaching and Learning (PRTL) requirement of their post.

The new CPD strategy has been developed by Skills for Care with the Children's Workforce Development Council (CWDC) and other partner agencies.

Andrea Rowe, Skills for Care CEO, said: "People who use social care services have often told us that their care is only as good as the person delivering it.

"The new CPD strategy aims to move organisations towards a learning culture, where the workforce develops the right human qualities alongside their qualifications.

"Skills for Care clearly sets out the necessary standards of skills and qualifications to enable social care workers to develop their roles and keep their practice up to date.

"A workforce that is well trained and motivated, with appropriate values and behaviours, is crucial to delivering quality social care services in a changing environment."

The suite of new products for employers includes an executive summary and full strategy, a framework document and an employer's guide. The documents are free to download from the Skills for Care website, or they can be purchased as a set of booklets.
