The Scottish Social Services Council – Guidance for employers on core training for redeployed workers, temporary workers and volunteers
“With the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic across the country, it will be necessary for health and social care staff to be deployed to work in frontline care services they may be unfamiliar with. Temporary workers and volunteers are also being recruited to support services”.
In partnership with NHS Education for Scotland, SSSC has provided this national guidance to support employers with training for redeployed workers, temporary workers and volunteers.
