Skills for Care - Centre of Excellence: going above and beyond

‘Centre of Excellence - to recognise the best learning providers for the adult social care sector who demonstrate exemplary practice going above and beyond, constantly evolving to meet the needs of adult social care and being innovative in the delivery to ensure the needs of the learners are met.’

To say the last few months have been very difficult and distressing for all care providers is an understatement and their main focus has been to keep everyone safe.

In response to Covid 19, we as a Skills for Care Centre of Excellence have supplemented our high quality, face to face training with tutor led virtual classrooms.

All sessions are being recorded to enable night staff and others, who are unable to join in the live sessions, to take the training at a time to suit them.

They will have a dedicated tutor phone line during extended office hours to call for support. The virtual classrooms enable staff, who are self-isolating and shielding, to take part in the live sessions and keeps them in touch with their colleagues.
