CfWI has developed a social worker supply and demand model in partnership with the Social Work Reform Board. The model provides an effective way of predicting supply and demand to aid workforce planning.
On Wednesday 9 May 2012, the CfWI met up with the North East Social Work Consortium (NESWOC), which is a group of representatives from Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) and Local Authorities within the North East. NESWOC has been central to social work development in the North East for the past 15 years.
The CfWI met with representatives from Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and North Tyneside Councils and provided them with an in depth view of the model. Our next step is to provide an updated version of the model and some hands on training to get all regions involved and using the same model and the same data.
