Skills for Care Chair, Professor David Croisdale-Appleby is stepping down in November after completing his two terms of office, and will be succeeded by Dame Moira Gibb.

“The new board has a wide range of sector based experience and more than two thirds of its members are employers. I want to place on the record my sincere appreciation of the quality of the work each and every one of our board members has put in to the success of Skills for Care and the National Skills Academy.

“Dame Moira as Chair, and Sharon Allen the CEO, will have a very strong team working with them as the board look to support employers to manage a period of huge change in adult social care, and play their part in the continuing implementation of the 2014 Care Act.”
