Through Skills for Care, we are providing a range of resources for social care providers to attract, train and retain staff. This includes the Workforce Development Fund, which enables employers to bid for financial support towards the training and development of staff. New learning opportunities, training and online resources to build digital skills in the care sector, are also being provided.
