Skills for Care recently published Learning from Innovation a report exploring the knowledge from the New Types of Worker programme and its implications for the transformation of the workforce in adult social care. It sets out this learning in the context of learning for policy makers, commissioners, and employers.
The New Types of Worker Programme started as a way of examining and exploring workforce issues arising from service change. It adapted and continues to adapt as the landscape of policy around the big society, personalisation and adult social care changes.
Skills for Care is already building on its learning from the new types of worker programme, creating new and innovative solutions such as the Common Core Principles to Support Self Care, its work in end of life care, the principles of workforce redesign, InLAWS and community skills development (‘Only a Footstep Away’).
