Skills for Care advises on induction requirements and what qualifications can help employers to develop staff, as well as helping fund adult social care employers to cover some of the costs of qualifications. We do produce products and services that help care organisations around workforce issues, from recruitment and retention strategies and information about new ways of working that can be adapted by your business. 

For those looking to work in care, we promote the best routes into the sector but we do not recruit for other employers or Apprenticeships. Please note that we do not deliver training or promote, accredit or directly fund training companies.
