The Care Professional Standards Academy is a partnership between Hertfordshire Care Providers Association and partners, Adult Care Services at Hertfordshire County Council aimed at ensuring the entire care practitioner workforce is trained to a professional, best practice standard across the board.

The Care Professional Standards Academy has been made for all care providers across the entire country from residential services such as nursing homes and care homes, to community organisations such as home care providers who support individuals in their own homes.

This would not be possible if it were not for the various care staff powering these organisations, however it is recognised working in social care is not always seen as attractive. By joining all care practitioners as Care Academy Affiliates, we aim to support recruitment and retention and help individuals continue to recognise and grow their knowledge. 

We believe that good care should be recognised, encouraged, and enhanced through further training to increase the quality of care.
