Powys’ Social Care Workforce Development Partnership supports the training and development needs of social care workers. Our key aim is to increase the proportion of staff across the whole social care sector with the qualifications, skills and knowledge they need for the work they do.
The Council continues to take steps to maintain and develop its workforce. The Executive Director of Care and Wellbeing has established and reinforced the current Workforce Development Team, that continue to concentrate on providing a whole sector approach to workforce planning.
Powys Social Care Workforce Development Partnership (SCWDP) provides training and development opportunities for people working within the social care sector. Details of training and development opportunities funded by SCWDP can be found in the Integrated Training Brochure 2011-2012 below. The document is not currently available in Welsh.
