GSF & Skills for Care Qualifications

GSF has mapped its Quality Improvement Training Programmes to Skills for Care qualifications.  The qualifications detail the core learning elements for each unit.  These units can be built up to help individuals gain QCF (Qualification Credit Framework) credits and CPD (continuing professional development) points.  These credits can be used to gain vocational qualifications at Award, Certificate or Diploma level and sometimes used towards higher level qualifications.

Organisations registering for relevant training programmes may be able to access part funding from the Workforce Development Fund (WDF).  Skills for care distribute the Workforce development fund.  This fund is available to support employers to fund relevant training to help them develop the skills of their workforce therefore benefiting the people you care for.

Information about accessing the WDF is available on the Skills for Care website

The evidence that participants in our programmes develop can be used to build these qualifications.
