The programme aims to develop a more skilled, confident workforce that works in an effective integrated way to deliver the best possible outcomes for young people The Association of Directors of Children’s Services is pleased to see that the Children's Workforce Development Council has developed this framework through consultation with employers, training providers, learners and young people. It will bring an element of commonality to the wide range of foundation degrees available for the young people’s workforce, while encouraging the development and recognition of specialist skills. The foundation degree has been developed as a flexible framework within which qualifications will sit, applicable to work in a range of situations. It describes characteristics of qualifications which support involvement, capability and capacity of employers. Many existing foundation degrees for the young people’s workforce will already fit into the framework and others are already broadly similar to the outline of the framework. This framework emphasises the importance of the three way relationship between the employer, learner and programme provider. It will help employers in ensuring they have support for their relationships with training providers, and support skill development in a range of contexts for work with young people.
