The value of workforce development in tough times
Thursday 8 March 2012, Hilton Manchester Deansgate
In tough times it is critical that the 1.56 million people who work in adult social care have the skills, knowledge and qualifications to deliver high quality social care. Continuing to invest in the development of a well trained and flexible workforce is essential for every social care provider to not only survive but thrive. The programme for this year?s conference will bring together a mix of keynote speakers and workshops to give delegates the bigger picture of what is going on in our sector and how to tackle the new ways of working that impact on the day to day job of providing adult social care.
Paul Burstow MP, Minister of State for Care Services
Peter Hay, Strategic Director, Adults and Communities, Birmingham City Council / President - Association Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS)
Sharon Allen, CEO, Skills for Care
Delegates have the opportunity to attend two workshops on the theme of quality v capacity. Each workshop will be delivered as an information session or interactive session. Some will incorporate examples from employers on how Skills for Care's work is being put into practice.
