Skills for Care is a government supported organisation that focuses on supporting workforce development in social care
C-ALF are working in a long term partnership with Skills for Care to establish a national programme of action learning to support those workers in their first year of work as they put their formal learning into the challenges of practice.
We have trained over 500 facilitators across the country and evaluated the effectiveness of the programme and the learning.
