Children’s Workforce Development

comment Our service at a glance

Untitled-5The Children’s Workforce Development team lays under the umbrella of The Academy of Social Work and Early Intervention. The Academy was officially launched in March 2017 and aims to promote reflect and respond to local and national social care issues and initiatives. The Academy is a virtual concept that brings together all aspects of learning and workforce development for Children’s Services.
On behalf of Walsall Council, we act as an appropriate body (AB), independent quality assurance of statutory induction for the newly qualified teachers (NQTs).


Why choose us?

In Walsall we pride ourselves with the quality of leadership and aim to develop leaders for the future, encouraging schools to have a succession plan and develop quality leader. The team works in partnership with teaching schools, sector leaders, Regional Providers of Assessment (RPA) and specialist staff in the development, delivery of all aspects of learning and teaching, CPD, career progression, management and leadership for teaching and non-teaching staff.
Our NQT Induction programme has an excellent track record of completion that is supported by the School Improvement team. Robust Quality Assurance Systems are in place to ensure both schools and NQT have a successful, supported induction year that exceeds recommended standards.
