Learning, development and support services
Learning, development and support services for children, young people and those who care for them.
The LDSS family of work includes:
- Education welfare officers and those working to support attendance
- Connexions personal advisers and those supporting young people
- Learning mentors and those working in similar roles
The "LDSS family of work" is child or young person centered. Staff work together to identify needs early, deliver coordinated packages of support, and help to secure better outcomes for children, young people and their families.
The LDSS family is part of our national responsibility for developing minimum standards of practice, national training and support. We work in partnership with lead organisations and workers to do this.
For more information about the Level 3 diploma for Children and Young People, please see the Level 3 diploma qualification section of the website.
