Âé¶¹Å®ÀÉ is supporting providers to #KeepLearning this year
Throughout January and February Âé¶¹Å®ÀÉ is running a campaign to inspire social care workers to #KeepLearning.
The campaign follows on from the success of the same campaign run in January-March 2023.
Titled ‘Why learning and development matters', the campaign aims to promote the benefits of learning and development for staff at all levels and raise awareness of opportunities available for ongoing learning.
Learning and development is key for an organisation’s success.
Staff at all levels, including leaders and mangers, should have the opportunity to access learning and development if the highest standards of quality in social care are to be met and maintained across the sector.
also shows that investing in learning and development for your team can support with keeping staff.
There was a 31.6% turnover rate for those workers with training recorded compared to 40.6% for those who did not have training recorded.
Care workers with social care qualifications were also less likely to leave their roles, with a 37% turnover rate for those with no relevant qualification, compared to 26.5% of those that did have a qualification.
Running across our website, social media, and other communication channels, the #KeepLearning activity will cover what learning and development opportunities are available in 2024 – from training to continuing professional development to events; the benefits which learning and development has for staff and people drawing on care and support, and the importance of learning and development for new, aspiring and experienced managers.
It will include blogs and real life insights from learning and development experts and social care providers with a strong ethos for ongoing learning.
