Skills gaps in care, exacerbated by the pandemic, mean skilled workers are needed more than ever.

The care industry is in the spotlight now more than ever, and the Government is investing in its future.

With skills shortages on the rise, the sector needs new workers to support our increasingly ageing population.

At City & Guilds we can support the early stages of skills development through our qualifications and apprenticeships, as well as our Ready for Social Care programme and Restart support.

We have a range of qualifications and content that will keep learners and employees engaged and retention levels high.

The Care industry not only needs to recruit skilled workers but also ensure that the current workforce continues to develop and grow in the sector.

Each year 30% of care staff leave, to retrain for another job or industry.

Through investing in staff, via qualifications, training or apprenticeships, individuals in the sector can build a career.

Find out how we can help support those working in care, to reach their potential and stay in the sector.

Our higher level diplomas can give employees the tools to move forward in their career and organisations.

Those working in the care sector have challenging but rewarding roles, with good career prospects.

For engagement and retention levels to remain high, individuals need the mechanisms in place to progress through their career into management.

At City & Guilds we can support those who are looking to build skills and move up in the sector, through our qualifications, higher level diplomas and apprenticeships
