Developing a model of CPD for a children’s integrated workforce

Simpson, Jenny; Bardsley, Janet; Bayley, Kenneth and Haider, Sharif (2015). Developing a model of CPD for a children’s integrated workforce. In: National Children and Adult Services Conference, 14-16 Oct 2015, Bournemouth.



The development of a CPD model is of key importance at a time of significant change in the transformation agenda and integrated working model for the delivery of statutory services to children and their families by local authorities. In the light of changing and sometimes inconsistent guidance from central government, Southampton City Council worked with The Open University Social Work Department to develop a model of CPD delivery for its workforce. The project gathered information and advice from a range of interested stakeholders. In this session young people in receipt of services themselves, members of the Council’s workforce development unit and Open University researchers will present their experience of the development of an integrated model of CPD and the lessons learnt.
