Valuing People Alliance: Social Care Knowledge & Skills Framework Survey

The Adult Social Care Reform White Paper (published in December 2021) sets out the Department for Health and Social Care’s commitment to the social care workforce having high quality training, qualifications, and professional development to ensure social care workers can become experts in their field and ensure best practice in meeting the needs of the people they support.

In addition, the paper highlights the commitment to ensuring career progression opportunities and addressing skills gaps through a ‘Knowledge & Skills Framework’ that will ensure the career progression pathway is linked to learning and development including apprenticeships and qualifications.

A recent webinar provided an opportunity for members of the Health and Wellbeing Alliance, people who provide support and providers of services across the voluntary and public sector to hear from an expert panel and have the opportunity to ask their questions. You can view a recording of this webinar here.

The Knowledge & Skills Framework survey, from the Valuing People Alliance, is to gather information from a range of people about what should be included in the new Social Care Knowledge & Skills Framework.
