Welcome to the National Workforce Skills Development Unit
“I’m pleased to welcome you to the National Workforce Skills Development Unit.
Our primary task is
to ensure that those who work in mental healthcare and learning disability healthcare are valued, developed and
sustained so that everyone can fulfill their potential to impact positively on
the health of the people we serve.
We are a small team who work collaboratively with experts
across health, social care, health care policy and education. The talent,
expertise and creativity of these experts is brought to bear on a range of problems
to co-produce positive, measurable and sustainable improvements to the NHS and
wider care workforce.
Working in partnership with Health Education England we
seek to address the mental health workforce issues facing health and care
services in England.”
Chris Caldwell, Director of Nursing and Director of the National Workforce Skills Development Unit
