Learn to Care - General Information:

Learn to Care represents those who are responsible for adults’ and children’s social care and social work learning and workforce development in all councils in England. Members are situated in a range of organisational structures while retaining a specific brief for the social care workforce and for commissioning and/or delivering learning and development activity for the adult and children’s social care workforce across local authorities and partner organisations.


The committee is made up of volunteer representatives from all nine areas of England and members work with the support of their employers on behalf of Learn to Care as well as carrying out their day to day responsibilities within their workplaces. Committee membership can be seen as useful evidence for CPD as well as ensuring up to date information for employers.

Committee members (and others) represent Learn to Care at national and regional level on strategic steering and advisory groups to ensure the workforce planning and development agenda is properly discussed, integrated and understood. This enables us to influence strategy by representing the local authorities’ perspectives.

The aims of Learn to Care are:
To promote the professional interests of members and support their development;
To promote the professional development of those who deliver or support social care and social work and, where appropriate, to make links with other professional bodies in order to further the  professional development of the workforce;
To represent the views of the association to appropriate statutory and non statutory bodies and to respond to relevant consultations;
To disseminate information regarding workforce development to all members and interested parties;
To strengthen links with regional and national organisations involved in learning and workforce development in social care and social work
