Children and Young People's Workforce Development

As part of Worcestershire County Council's Learning and Development Team, we provide a dedicated training programme for practitioners working with children, young people and their families in Worcestershire. These courses have a health and social care focus in order to promote best practice, enable and engage families and effectively promote achievement and safeguard children and young people in Worcestershire.

We also cascade information to the workforce to support knowledge and skills.
