Skills for Care and the Care Provider Alliance (CPA) offered workshops during 2017 and 2018 to bring social care leaders up to date with ongoing changes and requirements around Information Governance, General Data Protection Regulations and Cybersecurity. These workshops were part of the National Information Board’s Building a Digital Ready Workforce programme managed by Health Education England and NHS Digital, which aimed to equip the social care and health workforce with the confidence and competence to utilise digital ways of working to improve health and care.

Workshops were aimed at senior managers, registered managers or a person within the organisation who has a direct responsibility for Information Governance. Places are open to any care provider.
