Workforce development tools from Skills for Care, including a workforce readiness tool– to help organisations work out whether they have the right mix and numbers of workers, skills and knowledge to implement care and support reform and a person-centred workforce capacity planning model – to ensure the best use of resources in achieving better outcomes for people with care and support needs and their carers and families.
Workforce capacity planning helps you to work out whether or not you have the right mix and numbers of workers with the right skills and knowledge to implement care and support reform. The principles of workforce capacity planning are applicable across all services undergoing radical change.
The workforce capacity planning model has been developed with the National Skills Academy for Social Care in partnership with local employers, Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), Centre for Workforce Intelligence, The College of Social Work, Local Government Association (LGA) and Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE).
