INDEPENDENT contributes to “Skills for Care” Learning and Development Framework

The INDEPENDENT team in Hull has recently established contacts to the “Skills for Care” initiative in the United Kingdom.


The INDEPENDENT team in Hull has recently established contacts to the “Skills for Care” initiative in the United Kingdom. Meetings have been organised with the consortium of the initiative since this is seen as a chance to embed the philosophy and lessons learned in INDEPENDENT within what will be a nationally promoted framework. “Skills for Care” works closely together with the 48,000-plus organisations that employ adult social care workers, together with people who use services, carers and other key partners to develop effective tools and resources that meet the workforce development needs of the sector. Skills for Care supports employers develop the knowledge and skills of nearly 1.56 million workers and support the sector to plan for the future using data from the National Minimum Data Set for Social Care. For this, the “Skills for Care” consortium will provide a framework for good practice in setting-up, running, managing and commissioning services based on assistive technologies/telecare. Accredited educational modules will be produced for elearning and traditional learning.
