What is this about?
A high quality, appropriately trained workforce is about having the right people with the right skills feeling confident, prepared and working well together.
What does a fragmented approach look like?
Staff are not trained well, they are not motivated and they do not understand or appreciate what other people do in their organisation or in other organisations they work with.
What does an integrated and high quality approach look like?
Having positive leadership and a clear direction – the staff or volunteers are high quality and well trained. And importantly, every member of the team recognises the value of every other team member’s input.
