Acacia Training & Development Ltd achieved the Excellence Status by the National Skills Academy for Social Care in 2015.

The announcement comes after a comprehensive review of Acacia Training and Development Ltd’s training provision followed by a visit, where members from the National Skills Academy attended the offices to meet with staff to get an understanding of what training and support learners receive.

Since this recognition, the award has developed into the Endorsed Provider recognition through Skills for Care, which is awarded to training providers who are able to demonstrate exemplary commitment to meeting the needs of learners in adult social care, are compliant with the social model of care and understanding and measuring the impact of their provision on the lives of the people who use care services.


Acacia Training and Development Ltd is the only work based independent training provider in the South West to obtain this prestigious award.


The Skills for Care Endorsement Framework is a mark of quality for learning and development across the adult social care sector. Every year we also nominate our learners, trainers and employers for local and national awards to recognise their support and commitment in the apprenticeship scheme.
