Tackling stress in adult social care
Social care can be a stressful job, and stress at work can lead to errors, misjudgements, low morale and sickness absence if it’s not managed properly. Building the resilience of your staff will help them to deal with stress and cope better under pressure - it’s a core skill that everyone working in social care needs to have.
All Mas Codes for Level 2 & 3 SASE frameworks are now closed for registration. New apprenticeship standard APP codes are now available; please request approval.
