We want to transform the quality of leadership, management and commissioning in adult social care in England.
To achieve this, we are dedicated to supporting and promoting excellent learning and training.
We focus on three areas crucial to the delivery of excellent social care.
At the National Skills Academy, we believe that Leadership Behaviours should be modelled by everyone within the sector. So we along with a number of organisations have committed to promoting diversity, equality and human rights principles in the social care sector.
We want our organisation to reflect the sector that we deliver to as we believe a diverse workforce has a greater understanding of the diverse needs of the community it serves.
We have signed up to the Common Core Principles for Equality & Diversity, click here to find out more.
We identify the strategic learning and training needs of adult social care employers and provide practical solutions.
We work with employers to define the values that underpin excellent social care, and make these the foundation of the learning and training programmes we develop.
We use the same values to endorse training programmes across the sector.
We work with high-quality partners to develop the best learning materials and training programmes.
We develop modular formats that fit in with employees’ and employers’ day-to-day operational needs.
We test new training programmes with employers, employees and service users. We use their feedback to ensure quality, relevance, practicality and impact.
