Our project is focusing on Innovations and Skills in the Adult Social Care sector, particularly looking at work-based learning – where employees learn on the job.

Digital Training Tools

As part of our participatory action research processes (PAR), over the next year, LAPIS are co-designing a series of digital training tools to be made available on Moodle and downloadable from our website. Comprised of three courses and a digital map and guide tool, informed by research with managers and leaders across the Care Sector, the programme respond to meet the needs of managers and commissioners to help develop their own skills, knowledge and understandings, and that of their teams. Topics include: Create Your Work Based Learning Course, Turning Work Based Learning into Recognised Qualifications, Leadership in Work Based Learning, and Promoting Innovation in Care.

Innovation App

A free collaborative tool, easily accessible across mobile and desktop devices, that enables care organisations and commissioners to transfer knowledge and learn from each other, through the sharing of personal stories of innovation, best practice and services in social care.
