The difference we make
The work we do affects everyone who works in and with health and social care services, as well as every person in every community in Scotland.
We design and deliver education, ensure quality and standards, and use technology to enable staff to be skilled, confident, and motivated to provide better outcomes.
We are focused on preparing the workforce for the future and the changes in health and social care necessary to improve outcomes.
We work with the Scottish Government, local government, NHS, Health and Social Care Partnerships, social care providers, academia, regulators, and other strategic partners to create new roles and services and develop new and exciting career pathways for future generations.
