(Active since MAY 2019) Future Workforce Workstream

This will ensure that we have the workforce we need (aligning to workforce plans). Initial activity concentrated on identifying the current workforce activity by locality and organisation, the successes and challenges of these programmes in the engagement of the future workforce. This will progress to ensuring that we have the workforce we need by engaging with schools and colleges as well as supporting engagement programmes identified in the initial activity. This work needs scoping and mapping across organisations to share best practice.
