Skills for Care has opened registrations for the Moving Up programme for 2022. 

The programme is aimed at leaders from Black, Asian, and minority ethnic backgrounds who want to take the next step in their career, with an understanding of the specific barriers which people from a diverse background may face in progression.

Skills for Care data shows that while people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds make up 21% of the adult social care workforce, the same representation is not reflected in leadership roles.

The Moving Up programme includes a mix of self-learning modules and live online sessions, and covers topics and skills including networking, building self-confidence, leadership skills, creating a personal brand, and identifying your own skills and weaknesses.

Additionally, it offers an opportunity to network with like-minded people in the sector, learn from others, and share experiences and ideas.

There will be two cohorts available for this year’s programme with the first starting on 15 September 2022 and the second on 10 October 2022. From start to finish, the length of each cohort will be approximately three months.

The programme costs £750 +VAT, and employers can claim back £500 per participant through the Workforce Development Fund.
