The governments appetite for ‘all things digital’ is well documented and the Department of Health is committed to the concept of ‘Digital First‘. In response to this momentum, Skills for Care has now released its own strategy document; ‘Digital Working, Learning and Information Sharing Strategy’.
Although wide ranging in scope, a key tenet of the strategy recognises the importance of integrating digital technologies as part of a blended approach:
‘Digital learning is recognised as a crucial part of workforce development, and part of a blended approach to learning and development including the achievement of standards and qualifications’.
Furthermore, the strategy highlights four key actions required to help move this forward:
This is precisely the type of approach we at Care Academy have been working on for some time and it’s great to see ‘digital’ being championed from within the higher echelons of government. We have invested significant time and money into developing our unique QCF Qualification technology and this clearly places our clients (and their learners) at the forefront of this revolution.
As the ‘digital’ momentum continues to build, the smart money will be on further adoption and integration of online technologies with further government money (Skills Funding Agency) flowing in this direction. Care Academy has already utilised ‘Innovation Code’ funding to create bespoke qualifications on behalf of our clients and if you want to be part of this opportunity, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
