Learning providers

Learning and development should focus on the practical skills workers need to do their job but also keeping the values they need to put them in practice.

If you’re looking to source learning and development opportunities for your organisation we’ve developed a number of tools to help you choose the right learning and find the right provider for you. 

Finding quality learning

Guidance for learning providers

We work hand in hand with England’s adult social care employers to make sure their teams have the right skills and values. We recognise that learning providers play a crucial part in supporting these employers and others in the sector to develop a highly skilled workforce and drive up the quality of care delivered.


If you’re a learning provider looking at how you can improve your offering to the adult social care sector take a look at the information we have for you:

Delivering learning to people who employ their own care and support staff

We estimate there over 65,000 individuals who use their direct payment to employ their own care and support staff (also called individual employers), and around 110,000 people working in these roles as personal assistants (PAs). In other words, this market is big!

Delivering learning to individual employers and PAs can be quite unique from other training, so we've developed some short guidance which has lots of practical advice and tips to help.
