Workforce Development Strategy, 2021-2023 - Youth Justice Board (January 2021)

Summary: The YJB's 2021-2023 Workforce Development Strategy for the sector, as well as a template that youth justice services can use to outline their own Workforce Development Strategy

 

 

Description:

The Workforce Development Strategy acknowledges that considerable progress has been made in Youth Justice (YJ) workforce development over the last 10 years. Increasingly, managers are seeking out experienced individuals from a range of backgrounds who can demonstrate the key skills needed in YJ and where necessary, identifying additional training as appropriate. It is clear there is a distinct set of YJ skills, a well-defined body of knowledge and understanding with the workforce requiring accessible, high quality and accredited learning resources.

The YJB has also produced a template that youth justice services can use to produce a Workforce Development Strategy specific to their organisation.
