There is never an easy time to be a professional or leader in education and training.
We know that you gain your greatest satisfaction and motivation from helping pupils to succeed and making a difference to their learning, you continue to find the volumes of paperwork and bureaucracy intrusive and burdensome.
We would like to address the barriers to succeeding in balancing your working life with the demands of part-time study through flexible learning.
We can support your learning by addressing the many challenges you are currently facing.
Career Stage Framework
This section attempts to paint the national picture in terms of the increasingly significant role of CPD in schools and its impact on the school workforce, either as leaders and managers of the process or as participants. Department for Education and Skills - Every Child Matters Agenda & Youth Green Paper
The Children's Workforce Strategy which sets out action to be taken nationally and locally to ensure that there are the skills, ways of working and capacity in the children's workforce to deliver change for children with Practical guidance on multi-agency working
The Common Assessment Framework
- A Common Core of Skills and Knowledge for the Children's Workforce
- A 'climbing frame' of qualifications building on the Common Core, to ease progression and support retention
- A better infrastructure for employer-led reform through the emerging Children, Young People and Families Workforce Development Council, which will be part of the Social Care, Children and Young People's Sector Skills Council
Every Child Matters: Change for Children is a new approach to the well-being of children and young people from birth to age 19. The Government's aim is for every child, whatever their background or their circumstances, to have the support they need to:
5 outcomes for children
- Be healthy
- Stay safe
- Enjoy and achieve
- Make a positive contribution
- Achieve economic well-being
This means that the organisations involved with providing services to children - from hospitals and schools, to police and voluntary groups - will be teaming up in new ways, sharing information and working together, to protect children and young people from harm and help them achieve what they want in life. Children and young people will have far more say about issues that affect them as individuals and collectively.
Over the next few years, every local authority will be working with its partners, through children's trusts, to find out what works best for children and young people in its area and act on it. They will need to involve children and young people in this process, and when inspectors assess how local areas are doing, they will listen especially to the views of children and young people themselves.
