Centre for Workforce Development

The Centre for Workforce Development acts as a hub for associated research, applied research, consultancy, knowledge transfer and continuing professional development (CPD) activity within the Department of Childhood, Social Work and Social Care. The Department is home to a range of subjects including social work, social care, early childhood education and care, management and leadership. 

Workforce development can be defined as encompassing a range of strategies at the systemic, organisational and individual level (Roche et al, 2002) “In order to develop the people in an organisation to improve the way they deliver services and activities”

We have success, experience and scope for incentivising key workforce development strategies in the following within the context of the NHS, health, child protection, early childhood education and care, and social care.

  • Building resilience
  • Mentorship and Coaching
