Training course boost for champs
EMPLOYERS and volunteers in Swansea have benefited from a South Wales training project, according to Gwenda Thomas AM.
The deputy minister for children and social services told a meeting in the city's Village Hotel yesterday the Connecting Learners in the Third Sector programme had helped to improve key skills, including literacy, numeracy and IT, for those working in the community and voluntary sector, and in particular social care.
She said: "This project is about reaching people who provide social care and support where they work, in areas where formal training is not always easily accessible.
"We need to ensure that people delivering frontline care have the essential skills to carry out their roles to the best of their ability in line with our ambition to increase the status and profile of the social care workforce in Wales."

The Connecting Learners programme covers an area from Pembrokeshire to Monmouthshire, and has advised more than 600 people, providing essential skills and dyslexia awareness workshops to nearly 200 organisations.
Jeff Cuthbert, deputy minister for skills, added: "Gaining skills improves opportunities for career development, builds confidence and increases the value of the individual to an organisation. The Connecting Learners Project aims to fill skill gaps while ensuring care staff provide a high standard of care."
