The Mandatory Training Group receives Skills for Care endorsement
Ensuring that health and social care employers provide their staff with high-quality training has never been greater.
The Mandatory Training Group is pleased to announce that Skills for Care endorsed us as a verified training provider. The endorsement recognises The Mandatory Training Group's commitment to excellent social care training.
Who are Skills for Care?
In 2001, Skills for Care was established as the strategic body for planning and developing adult social care in England. Additionally, they worked with Health Education England and Skills for Health to establish the Care Certificate, which assesses the fundamental skills and knowledge needed in social care.
Skills for Care envisions a society where social care users receive the care, support, and advice they need to live a whole and satisfying life. Skills for Care collaborates with health and social care employers, partners, and the government to accomplish this vision. By working together closely, Skills for Care can assemble a network of experts who can leverage their knowledge and influence to maximise its reach and impact.
For the social care sector to deliver high-quality care, collaborative working ensures it has the people, training, skills, and support it needs.
What does Skills for Care endorsement mean?
Skills for Care invites social care learning and development providers to apply for official endorsement. Employers in the care sector can identify training providers with high-quality services by using this bespoke quality mark only awarded to care training providers who meet Skills for Care's strict standards.
