Day one post-Brexit and thankfully the world has not fallen apart – just yet. Its 1st February and the UK is no longer a member of the EU. So what does this mean for training for the Health and Social Care Sector?
It is estimated that there are some 1.35 million jobs in local authority and independent sector adult social care employers.
With data from the Adult Social Care (ASC) Workforce Data Set showing that there were around 233,000 jobs in adult social care held by people with a non-British nationality (104,000 EU; 129,000 non-EU).
After Brexit EU nationals can register for settled status if they have been in the UK for 5 years, or pre-settled status if they have been here for less than 5 years.
The Brexit scheme is free and the deadline for applications is 30 June 2021. More information here
