The Home of Reflective Supervision        

The Care Act 2014 is the most significant piece of legislation in the adult social care sector since the establishment of the welfare state. The Act sets out in one place, local authorities’ duties in relation to assessing people’s needs and their eligibility for publicly funded care and support. The Act aims to put people at the centre of their care and support and maximise their involvement and requires local authorities to promote integration with the NHS and other key partners.

In order to implement the various features of the Act, local authorities have had to focus on training their adult social care workforce in key areas, including Assessment, Eligibility, Support Planning and Reviews, Strengths Based Approaches, Promoting & Managing Positive Risk Taking, Prevention & Wellbeing and many more. In order to upskill new and existing adult social care workers to keep them up-to-date and compliant with The Care Act, In-Trac has formed a team of social worker trainers, very experienced in this area, to develop an adult social care workforce package. These courses are available to be delivered online in a virtual classroom as well as by face-to-face training. Key topics include: Annual Reviews; Assessment & Eligibility Criteria; Care Act Refresher Training; Holding Different (or Difficult) Conversations; Legal Literacy; Ordinary Residence; Strengths-Based Approaches; Support Planning for Positive Outcomes; Prevention & Wellbeing; Care Act Carers’ Compliance

Care Act Refresher

This 1.5 training day Care Act Refresher Training for practitioners will cover a refresher on the key aspects and principles of the Care Act, including involving the person as much as possible during the process which highlights a number of key duties. It will look at the link between the Act and how this is translated into effective practice and explores a range of aspects in relation to good assessment and good care and support planning. The course will consider what different types of information can be used in evidence, the factors to take into account when formulating a professional opinion and examine defensible decision making. Linked to this will be a session on what constitutes ethical and effective recording. The training will finish with looking at handling difficult conversations and promoting self-resilience. The sessions are highly participative with delegates working in small groups on a range of case studies, exercises and quizzes. The programme for managers will have the same overall programme but will focus on how they can ensure their respective team members meet the objectives and consistently achieve legal compliance and high standards of practice.
