Skills for Care launches training programme to support BAME workers

Skills for Care

Skills for Care has launched a new training programme to support people from ethnic minority backgrounds working in social care.

The Forefront Programme is a new suite of digital modules aimed at adult social care staff from black, Asian, and ethnic minority backgrounds who are working directly with people drawing on care and support, and is intended to build participants’ confidence in improving equality, diversity and inclusion in their organisation while also developing leadership skills to help with career progression.

Topics covered throughout the course will include:
an overview of equality, diversity and inclusion;
promoting equality, diversity and inclusion within your organisation;
leadership and management;
personal branding;
communication skills; and
career barriers and career progression.

Supporting culture and diversity to ensure the workforce is treated equally, feels included and valued, and is supported to stay well and pursue their careers in social care is a key priority within Skills for Care’s strategy.

As well as the Forefront programme, Skills for Care already offers the Moving Up Programme which has been running for 11 years and provides support for black, Asian and ethnic minority managers and leaders in social care to take the next step in their career.
