'The Big Deal' is the Children's Workforce Development Council's Sector Skills Agreement which sets out what we need to do to build a world class workforce to deliver the very best outcomes for children, young people and families. It sets out the skills, knowledge and competencies the children's workforce needs for the future.
The priorities for action are:
- recruitment and retention;
- workforce skills;
- qualifications and training;
- funding for training and development;
- workforce intelligence.
We are the first authority to sign up to'The Big Deal' and you can find out more at www. cwdcouncil.org.uk/projects/sectorskillsagreement.htm.
