Social Care Workforce Development Programme (SCWDP)

The Social Care Workforce Development Programme provides a comprehensive training and development programme in partnership with social care providers in the Vale of Glamorgan.


Designed around the learning needs of the statutory, independent and third sector, it combines mandatory training with bespoke, specialised courses guided by an annual audit of social care providers, social services PDRs and feedback from other groups within the Vale.


The courses are provided free of charge. A non-attendance/cancellation fee of £40 per person for a full day. 

Please Note: If the course is no-longer available online, delegates are within the charging period.


Staff are expected to attend for the duration of the training. Those who do not complete the full course will not be issued with a certificate.
