Support workforce

We are committed to helping people to helping people gain the skills they need get into healthcare work and get on. We support a range of apprenticeships and schemes to widen access to the healthcare opportunities.

Development of the support workforce is supported by the national strategies Talent for Care and Widening Participation.                   
Talent for Care - This is a National Strategic Framework for the development of healthcare support staff. More information can be found: Link to strategy.                   
Apprenticeships - These are  the basis of a fantastic development route into Healthcare, the Apprenticeship are also embedded within the Talent for Care strategy as part of the 'Get On' and 'Go Further' themes.                   
Care Certificate - "Following the Francis Inquiry, Camilla Cavendish was asked by the Secretary of State to review and make recommendations on the recruitment, learning and development, management and support of healthcare assistants and social care support workers. The resulting report, published in July 2013, found that the preparation of healthcare assistants and social care support workers for their roles within care settings was inconsistent, and one of the recommendations was the development of a fundamental certificate of care.
