Growing apprenticeships in social care – Centre for Workforce Intelligence [UK] – May 2013

“The Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) and partners have today published a report on growing apprenticeships in adult social care.

Produced by the CfWI in partnership with the National Care Forum (NCF) and the Institute of Vocational Learning and Workforce Research at Buckinghamshire New University (IVLWR), the paper brings together workforce intelligence to provide an accessible commentary on growing the apprenticeships workforce.

Apprentices are central to the Government’s social care workforce ambitions to increase the number of apprentices starting in social care to 100,000 by 2017. This new paper helps employers to plan and develop their apprenticeship workforce.

The paper also outlines the key factors influencing demand and supply of adult social care apprenticeships. These include:

changes in funding allocations
renewed national policy and strategy
increased demand for adult social care
new concerns over the quality of apprentices’ education and experience
negative perceptions of social care from members of the general public”
