Getting Ahead in the Race for Early Talent: What social care providers should do

Want to understand what young people think about the care sector? What do they really look for when part-time job hunting? If you’d like to learn how to successfully plant the seed for a career in care then you should join us on June 9th at 10.00. We’ll be sharing the findings from a survey aimed at those currently studying FE Courses, and sharing a toolkit of tactics to help you better develop your workforce of the future. This Social Care Forum will also highlight various sector initiatives aimed at raising the number of young people working in social care.
