We expect you to proactively plan and prioritise multiple learning initiatives, innovations, and projects; ensuring that our materials are relevant and impactful. You will have experience of all aspects of learning and development, gained in a social care environment with the resilience and self-assurance to influence and inspire others. You will also engage with the external social care and L&D environment, keeping abreast of innovations and best practice. Professional qualifications are desirable, as is an ability to demonstrate experience of work which matches the requirements of this profile.
