Skills for Care and Development: Supporting employers with the workforce implications of Assistive Technologies
This Skills for Care and Development project will take a strategic approach to the development of a national training strategy for assistive technology.
An increasing number of citizens are in need of care. Decreasing levels of public resource means that there is a need to deliver services in more effective ways and utilise the care workforce more efficiently. Electronic assistive technology (AT) has the potential to offer cost efficiencies, improve service quality and reduce pressure on those delivering care services.
