ASC-WDS is a service which allows providers to store their workforce and training records, access funding for training and benchmark their workplace. Skills for Care uses the data from ASC-WDS to produce key sector insights and reports. These insights are used by Government and other stakeholders to aid with understanding and policy making for the sector.
Skills for Care has updated the service to ask users additional questions which will help DHSC to monitor the impact of the initiatives proposed in the Government’s social care reform white paper.
Skills for Care has worked very closely with DHSC’s economists and care providers during the development of these questions to ensure they meet the needs for producing intelligence and are simple for care providers to answer.
