About this event

Do you want to understand more about social care workforce planning? A good workforce plan will help your organisation be more successful and ensure you have the right people with the right skills at the right time to meet the needs and future opportunities for your business and the local population.

Skills for Care is working in partnership with Somerset County Council to deliver a free to attend learning and development opportunity for care provider employers across Somerset to engage them in workforce planning and workforce re-design.

This will consist of two face-to-face half days sessions that will describe what workforce planning is, national and local drivers, how to affect change and workforce transformation, as well as provide a number of practical resources. This will be followed by a virtual follow-up session to share ideas, learning, any challenges and hear from others.

After attending the course, delegates will be able to:

    • Define what is workforce planning
    • Explain why it is important
    • Demonstrate how find relevant data and summarise using templates
    • Interpret data, local and national drivers to establish priorities to create a workforce plan

The workshops are targeted primarily at those with a responsibility for workforce transformation and re-design from any size of organisation, for example senior managers/owners, nominated individuals, registered managers, HR leads.
