In Herefordshire and Worcestershire (H&W), ICS leaders have created an ICS Academy. The aim of the Academy is to be a key enabler of the ICS’s work by developing the locality’s workforce talent across all health and care disciplines.

H&W ICS serves a health and care workforce of 19,500, with adult social care accounting for 1,157 (6%) – plus some 300 or so voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.
The ethos within the Academy is to improve the talent base across the ICS health and care plus VCSE sectors though increased access to, and take up of professional development opportunities, including apprenticeships.
