Call for evidence – learning in care settings Wednesday, October 17, 2012 - 09:12
In 2009, NIACE was commissioned by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) to collate examples of learning opportunities provided for older people in care settings. The project resulted in a film, as well as a report and a resource pack of support materials, which are all available online for free. They raise awareness of the benefits of learning for older people, their carers and families. They also encourage and support public, private and voluntary sector care providers to extend and enhance learning opportunities for older people in care settings.
Recently, BIS has commissioned NIACE to update this work by identifying new examples of good practice to refresh these resources, in light of policy changes and key research published in this area.
