Avenues training endorsed by Skills for Care


Skills for Care has confirmed that Avenues is now one of its Endorsed Training Providers, after a rigorous evaluation of the charity’s training and processes.

The endorsement framework embeds the Common Inspection Framework, National Occupational Standards for Learning and Development and the Leadership Qualities Framework, and is the quality mark for learning and development providers within the adult social care sector. 

Group Learning and Development Manager Shane Carroll said: “Working through the process helped us to reflect on how we develop our employees, by providing quality, effective and affordable training.   We used the framework and accreditation process as a way of challenging our thinking, helping us to create a more robust and inclusive approach, especially with our training courses, qualifications and internal consultancy services. 

“The endorsement signifies that the content of our courses and qualifications have been successfully mapped, designed and conformed to meet care requirements, and it will allow enable Avenues to offer endorsed training services externally, if we choose to do so.”

The development of the endorsement by Skills for Care was a result of the Cavendish Review and requests from employers and companies to have a means of identifying high quality training providers.
