Newport Social Care Workforce Development Partnership logo

Newport Social Care Workforce Development Partnership (SCWDP) represents the social care sector within the Newport area assisted by Coleg Gwent, the University of South Wales, independent social care trainers and Newport City Council.

Newport SCWDP aims to promote the Welsh Government ethos of ‘one sector, one workforce’, ensuring that the workforce has access to relevant qualifying and non-qualifying training, information and guidance.

The SCWDP links to the Greater Gwent Regional Workforce Development Board through the Gwent Transformation team and Newport social services training manager.
