Connect2Care has been awarded the Skills for Care Centre of Excellence certificate for innovations in learning and development.

The certificate recognises those who go above and beyond, demonstrate exemplary practice, are constantly evolving to meet the needs of adult social care and innovate to ensure the needs of learners are met.

“Meeting the training needs of adult social care workers in the current climate calls for innovation, which at Connect2Care, is something we are constantly striving towards. In recent months, we’ve developed specific courses to help care workers strengthen their skills and expertise during the pandemic, while ensuring they have the tools to manage their own mental health and support their colleagues through these challenging times.

“This stamp of approval from Skills for Care shows how our training and apprenticeship programmes are helping to make a real difference to the learner and the people they care for, when they need it most.”

Connect2Care was commemorated for its commitment to delivering an outstanding service. This includes initiatives such as its Quality Assurance measures, which ensure the integrity of qualifications are maintained in line with internal and external governance; its robust staff development programme; the enriched learning experience for apprentices, whereby they have access to a diverse range of expert trainers and one-on-one mentoring; as well as Connect2Care’s bespoke training offer, developed in response to specific business needs.
