New, emerging and changing job roles: Adult social care in extra care housing

This report from Skills for Care explores existing and emerging job roles which straddled housing and social care. The project, undertaken by Sitra, includes an assessment of the workforce development needs these roles pose and the potential role of apprenticeships to meet such needs. It recognises the importance of learning provision to extend the skills and capabilities of staff working in the sector, recruitment and retention, and the need to embrace new and emerging policy and practice developments such as the Care Act 2014 and new technologies.
