Government urged to recognise care staff as skilled workers

Apr 29, 2020

The Talent for Care team strongly supports the call to recognise care staff as skilled workers.

After what we’ve seen and learnt in the last few weeks, it is hard to think that anyone would still want to brand front-line care staff as “unskilled”.

It is not just fair for everyone in the front-line, delivering care every day under incredibly challenging circumstances, to be recognised for their skills. It is also essential to be able to attract care talent from abroad, as soon as travel restrictions will be lifted, at a time when we need as many talented carers as we can get.
