The learning services for both the East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Adult Social Care Services and the Independent Care Sector Providers were brought together under a single umbrella through the Social Care Academy, which is operated by Learning and Development (Social Care) at the Council. The Academy has a wealth of experience in the care and welfare assessment, and care giving. This enables the provision of high quality learning for the Adult Social Care Sector in the East Riding.
A skilled and knowlegeable adult social care workforce enables the provision of quality Service User focused services that have a positive impact on people's lives. To support this, the Social Care Academy is dedicated to offer and provide quality learning experiences and resources, which enable staff to learn, develop and grow.
As well as the traditional face-to-face courses and events, we also offer a range of extended provision such as; online resources, blended learning, eLearning, Self-Study Guides and Virtual Classroom sessions. We will develop and grow our offer for the Adult Social Care Sector so that it meets the challenges of providing quality service user focused services both now and in the future.
