Skills for Care is the employer-led workforce development body for adult social care in England which is a growing sector that currently has around 17,000 employers and a workforce of around 1.5 million workers contributing an estimated £43 billion to the English economy. In June 2014, we merged with the National Skills Academy for Social Care, to maximise the impact of our combined knowledge and expertise in the sector.

Together, we work with employers and other partners to create a fit for purpose qualifications framework and practical resources to develop the skills, knowledge and leadership of the workforce. Our work helps our sector recruit and retain the right people who have the rights skills at the right time to deliver high quality services to people who need care and support in our communities.
