Monthly Theme - Workforce

Knowledge about children’s speech, language and communication is crucial for everyone working with children. Yet the recent Communication Trust workforce survey reported that across a wide range of jobs and positions, only a third of respondents felt very confident in supporting children’s language development and approximately half reported that they had little or no training.

This month you can find out more about the survey, read about the importance of joint working to develop knowledge and learn about a range of approaches to workforce planning and development.
