CPD in the Social Care Sector

Social Care is a huge sector within the UK workforce. Due to an ageing population, the sector continues to grow and develop. It includes a huge range of roles, incorporating healthcare, counselling, nutrition and much more. As a result, it is crucial those in social care keep their skills and knowledge refreshed, working to a high standard at all times.

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) requires members to complete 1 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activity every 2 months. This can be in the form of a course, workshop, or structured reading. The Care Council for Wales (CCW) requires 90 CPD hours every 3 years.

Examples CPD courses in the social care sector include:
Understanding Neurodivergent Families
Eating Disorders All Ages All Genders
Introduction to Domestic and Sexual Abuse
Courageous Conversations
An Introduction to Protective Behaviours

The cost of courses adds up very quickly. If you are a member of the social care sector, and you are required to provide CPD for your employees, creating your own accredited courses can save you huge amounts of money. Plus, you’ll be able to provide in-house training tailored to your company. If you’re interested, please contact Advantage Accreditation.
