Standardised training and CPD

Care workers should be finally recognised as skilled professionals. We deserve fit for purpose and standardised the training of better quality and higher level than Care Certificate that seems to assume that care workers are academically challenged. Training pathways for specialist care workers such as dementia or learning disabilities should be created. Training should be portable and care workers should not pay for annual mandatory sessions. People who wish to remain in very rewarding care worker positions and not become managers should be supported with CPD programmes and role development courses. Care work is a profession and needs to be trained as such.
