ITT for the Recruitment and Management of Children’s Agency Social Workers.
The Council has produced a Children’s Service Improvement Plan for its Children’s Services division. A key priority of the children’s workforce strategy is to further stabilise the workforce and build sustainable capacity for the future. A critical part of this plan is the development of an updated procurement strategy and approach to managing agency workers due to the issues encountered by the service.
