New toolkits to develop the health and social care workforce

Through Ambition London, funded by JP Morgan Chase Foundation, two new toolkits have been made available to promote the rewards and tackle common misconceptions of careers in health and social care sector.

These toolkits, developed with experts from Skills for Care and the National Skills Academy for Health, clearly articulate the benefits of a rewarding career in both the social care and health sectors and provides training providers and employment professionals with better information to support people who are unemployed or in long-term low-paid work.

In addition, the toolkits promote information on the careers and training routes for job roles within these professions and promote Advanced Learner Loans as a funding route for those individuals who wish to invest in their skills and progress their career.
