Skills for Care understands the importance of recognising workforce quality and development. All too often our sector doesn’t draw the nation’s attention to our sector’s successes but the Accolades provide an opportunity to do just that. They are not awarded to individual care workers but rather to organisations and employers who are committed to delivering high quality care and developing their workforce.
To achieve an Accolade proves an organisation’s success in achieving the highest standards of workforce development within social care. As well as celebrating best practice, the Accolades provide an excellent platform in which to showcase best practice to the wider sector - especially when an applicant describes a new initiative or way of working.
