A system in transition: Implications for the children’s workforce of changes in local government

This report summarises the findings from 9 regional workforce surveys, covering the whole of the UK, which were conducted in December 2011 by the regional leads for succession planning for children’s services.

It does not do justice to the quality and depth of the individual regional surveys, but it does highlight a number of significant challenges which need to be acknowledged by central and local government, and addressed in the DCS leadership provision made by the VSC.
