Workforce information architecture programme

Workforce information architecture programme

The CfWI was commissioned by the Department of Health to develop a signposting tool as part of a wider workforce information architecture (WIA) programme to support a safe transition to the new health and social care system.

The tool has been designed to support workforce planners and education commissioners by improving awareness of relevant sources of data, information and intelligence, to inform decision making.

Find out more on the workforce information signposting tool.


The Workforce information architecture report: Improving awareness of available data, information and intelligence, is available to download from our publications section.

The report summarises the approach taken for this project. It outlines the engagement we had with stakeholders and explains how these discussions informed developments. It also identifies a number of areas for improvement in the way data is collected and shared which, if effectively addressed, could support more effective workforce planning and decision making in the future.
