Endorsement for Progress to Excellence and its high quality adult social care training
Government recognition has been given to Progress to Excellence Ltd for its delivery of high quality learning and development in the adult social care sector.
Skills for Care, the strategic body for workforce development in adult social care in England, has once again named the company as an endorsed training provider whose work supports its Social Care Commitment values.
The endorsement is a mark of quality only given to the best learning and development organisations operating in the adult social care sector.
Working with employers, Skills for Care sets the standards and qualifications to equip social care workers with the skills and knowledge needed to deliver high quality care to carers and those who use adult care services.
Damian Burdin, chief executive at Progress to Excellence Ltd, said: “Receiving this endorsement again by Skills for Care proves that we fully support and uphold the values of the Social Care Commitment.
“It also shows that the training we deliver makes a significant difference not only to the learners but also to those who receive support services in the adult social care sector.”
The endorsement framework was developed following the Cavendish Review, an independent inquiry into how the training of hospital healthcare assistants and social care support workers employed in care homes and people’s own homes could provide care to the highest standard.
The review also embedded a request from employers to have a site where they could easily find high quality training providers, taking away the uncertainty and need to trawl through a minefield of existing providers.
The Social Care Commitment itself is an agreement between employers and employees where both sides sign up to clear commitments to develop skills and knowledge within their workforce. It focuses on the real issues people have in the workplace, such as how to achieve effective communication, uphold dignity and protect an individual’s privacy.
By signing up, employers and their workers are pledging to continually deliver high quality care, making sure the public have confidence in the services provided.
