Coronavirus (COVID-19)

To ensure that we can support service areas placed under additional demand at this time, we have taken the decision to postpone all learning events that require staff attendance with immediate effect. This position will continue to be monitored based on the advice received from Government.

All our resources are now focused on supporting colleagues with any essential operational skills for critical services.

We will continue to communicate arrangements via our pages, and we encourage colleagues to take advantage of e-learning as part of any revised working arrangements they may be required to do. The application system for learning and development is temporarily unavailable for all new applications until further notice. 

Visit our Coronavirus guidance page to keep up to date with the latest information and advice for staff. For the latest guidance and updates to services for residents, please visit the Newsroom. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Social Care Wales Workforce Development Programme [SCWWDP]

The Social Care Wales Workforce Development Programme [SCWWDP] is funded by the Welsh Government and managed by Social Care Wales. Carmarthenshire works in partnership with Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion Councils to manage and deliver an annual plan aimed at meeting national, local and regional priorities.

The grant provides a significant supplement to what employers provide for social care training and where appropriate we work in collaboration with a range of partners to provide learning and development opportunities for the social care workforce, commissioned services and independent/voluntary sector.

Our dedicated team of advisors and support staff are able to assist you with the following:

  • Advice on how to undertake training needs analysis for yourself and your staff.
  • Helping you to identify appropriate mentoring and/or coaching opportunities for yourself or your staff.
  • Advice on the statutory duties that you should cover with the training of your staff.
  • Advice on appropriate avenues of training and up-skilling for yourself and staff, both from ourselves and alternate training providers.
  • Advice on how to embed and evaluate the effectiveness of the training that your staff undertake.
  • Signposting to other training and learning and development resources and opportunities

Please select courses appropriate to your role from the options below.

Courses cover a wide range of subjects so please read the flyers thoroughly to ensure the training provided is appropriate to your role.
