Introduction to TEC
In a digital world the expectations of social service employers, the workforce and people who use services are changing. It’s becoming more and more important that workers are suitably equipped by developing their skills - especially as there is a growing wealth of information available through digital means.
We believe that:
- the workforce should be enabled to take advantage of the huge range of learning opportunities provided by digital learning
- we must work to avoid the emergence of a two-tier workforce, that is, those who apply their digital capabilities to everyday learning and practice and those who ‘don’t do technology
- people who use services should expect and be enabled to take advantage of the digital opportunities in society in a safe manner
- a skilled and confident workforce needs to develop its own digital capabilities in order to support people to do this.
We are developing this free, online resource to help social service workers discover more about Technology Enabled Care to support learning and practice. Over the next several months, we will be adding new information relating to Technology Enabled Care - so please stop by and have a look when you have the time!
