ACC

Everyone at ACC is passionate about supporting the outstanding care of older people. We use the power of story telling to engage, inform and inspire continuous learning and development in care home and home care organisations.

ACC is recognised as a Centre of Excellence Learning and Development provider by Skills for Care and is a 2016/2017 Accolades Finalist.

As you know, the care of older people and the workforce, which provides that care has evolved. ACCs contemporary learning and development practices support you to meet organisational and workforce goals. The ACC Learning Pathway will help your team build on skills and knowledge to reach an individual and organisational goal. We recognise that adult learners are continuously building on a foundation of knowledge, skills and experience.

The ACC Learning Pathway provides building blocks that individuals or organisations select to build on that strong foundation. Learners should not feel constrained by their designation or title but rather be inspired to continue learning.

ACC provides courses and support resources. Let’s talk about your Learning and Development goals and please ask us about the ACC Learning Pathway and the 2017 Course Guide.
