Money offered to improve staff skills

Funding is still available for councils in England to support private, voluntary and independent sector employers improve the skills of their children’s services staff.

The Children’s Workforce Development Council made £3.3m available to councils in June and applications have to be in this month.

Unitary councils are eligible for £20,000 and two-tier authorities are eligible for £30,000. So far, 103 authorities have applied.
The money aims to involve the sector in planning and improving services for children and young people in the current financial year.
