Workforce development strategy

This document sets out the priorities and focus of the refreshed North Tyneside Council’s Children’s Workforce Development Strategy for 2019 – 2022. 

The strategy recognises that the children’s workforce is our biggest asset and critical to achieving our ambitious plans for improving outcomes for children and their families.

The council published its children’s workforce development strategy in 2015.  A lot has changed since then locally and nationally and we have had three successful inspections where our workforce have been praised for their commitment and hard work to ensuring positive outcomes for children, young people and families in North Tyneside.

Since the publication of the last workforce development strategy in 2015, children’s services has launched its three pledges of which the workforce now delivers against.  These are:

  1. To intervene early with evidence based, family focussed services
  2. To work in partnership to keep children safe in school
  3. To keep children and young people safe at home, healthy and connected to their local communities
