Choosing workforce learning is a practical guide to help those responsible for selecting and purchasing learning and development for their workforce. The guide provides information and tips on:
- identifying the learning needs of your workers
- the different types of learning available
- the questions you need to ask to develop a learning package for your organisation
- how to evaluate learning and development
- which issues should be considered
- finding the right learning provider for your organisation.
The guide also includes a handy checklist to help you choose a suitable provider, prompting the questions that you need to consider when making your decision.
Our top ten tips packs are a small set of the cards that include the key things you need to think about when trying to find a suitable learning provider. The cards give suggestions about what you need to find out before you commit to choosing a provider. These include thinking about whether your provider understands the social care sector, how the learning is delivered and how it is accredited or recognised. The set of cards comes on a small key chain so they can be used in and about the workplace and referenced easily.

The directory will be available in early 2014. The providers listed on the directory are not approved by Skills for Care so it’s important you use Choosing workforce learningto ensure the provider meets your specific needs.
