Workforce development - Evidence and Learning
The evaluation of our Workforce Development initiative is being carried out by The Lines Between. They will publish their final Evaluation Report in April 2021. They will also be evaluating our Creative and Active Lives initiative, as they are linked under the theme of relationship-based practice and policy. The Lines Between will publish their final Evaluation Report in July 2021.
The Trust offered funding for projects that focussed on strengthening the knowledge and skills of the paid and voluntary workforce, so that they are more able to meet the needs and aspirations of young people with care experience. We call this 'Workforce Development', and we funded seven projects.
The evaluation will look at how effective this funding has been in improving the skills and knowledge of the paid and voluntary workforce, to support them to put relationships and involvement at the heart of the care system, and to build a sense of shared purpose with young people.
