Skills for Care has refreshed its innovative career pathways e-tool to include new qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and additional case studies.
The interactive e-tool has been created to help make working in social care not just a good job, but a great career. It is designed for people considering starting in social care and for those already working in the sector keen to see what career development opportunities are open to them.
The updated interactive pages use text and video to explain ‘what is social care?’, ‘starting in social care’ and ‘developing your career’.
Under ‘developing your career’ the career pathways matrix allows individuals to identify their particular social care interests against job 'levels' to find what roles there are and see what range of qualifications are needed for those roles. It also includes case studies and contacts for more information.
“The interactive e-tool has been created to show that working in social care is not just a good job, but a great career,” says Skills for Care CEO Sharon Allen.
