Championing Children: frequently asked questions (September 2007)
Championing Children is a framework, which has been developed to establish a common understanding about the particular abilities required to lead and manage multi-agency teams in children's services. In these services, professionals from different sectors come together to work around the needs of children.
The second edition of Championing Children was published in October 2006, following field testing and evaluation of a draft framework.
Championing Children can be used by individuals, teams and organisations in planning their leadership, management, training and development needs. It has been used for workforce planning and capacity building; training and development; induction, supervision and appraisal.
We commissioned the Office for Public Management to develop and test Championing Children. Work was overseen by a steering group, which included representatives of employers, training organisations, leadership development providers and sector bodies.
The Children's Workforce Development Council (CWDC) is responsible for embedding Championing Children and developing supporting materials. In March 2007, the CWDC published a resource book to support practitioners in using the framework and a report of the field testing and evaluation findings.
