Since 2009, the hallmark of the DCS leadership provision has been its focus on reflecting the real work context of children’s services. We are able to do this through a strong network of partnerships which inform our design and delivery processes. Our partnerships are driven by shared values, a common moral purpose and a belief in a set of principles which commits us to deliver world class leadership development within the sector.
Crucial to the future sustainability of the sector’s leadership provision, is a close working alliance with our local authority stakeholders, working towards joint commitments to sector-led improvement. We share a joint vision to promote and sustain a learning community that has the capacity and resilience to meet the demands of continued performance improvement through effective peer support and challenge and a collective responsibility for improving the outcomes for children and young people.
