Abstract

There are approximately 54,000 healthcare staff in North West London, of which 15,600 are in bands 1-4. In the first and only national policy for development of support workers, Camilla Cavendish identified the necessity to train and support this staff group to deliver high quality care. The resulting Talent for Care Framework has enabled employers and educators to begin this process. This evaluation report summarises the evidence of activity and evaluates the impact of a complex and multifaceted project which aims to implement and embed the Talent for Care Framework in North West London. The evaluation was completed between October and December 2016 as the project reached the end of its second phase of activity. There are nine overarching aims of the work, each with specific objectives and outcomes; 1. An increase in the number of NHS apprenticeship starts to 615 by April 2016 2. Establishing a formal NWL employer-led vocational education and training collaboration 3. A quality assurance framework applicable to health and social care 4. An increase in the number of support workers using e-portfolios 5. Piloting of the Higher Certificate 6. Implementation of study skills bridging programmes to widen access into preregistration degrees 7. Design of health and social care support roles to support independence outside of hospital (this has been extended to include domiciliary care workers) 8. Strategies and tools to assess and improve numeracy levels including in general practice 9. A “Get In” strategy increasing the number of traineeships, ambassadors, work experience opportunities and links with schools and colleges The Talent for Care team worked across all NHS Trusts in the region, and engaged with a wide range of other stakeholders, building partnerships and resources to support employers to develop their support staff workforce.
