Research & workforce data

We are working with our partners and our stakeholders to create and support a world-class children and young people's workforce.

CWDC, its partners, and all those within the occupational groups covered by CWDC activities require evidence in order to create, develop and support a world-class children and young people's workforce.

Research within CWDC aims to gather, and widely share, strong evidence to support policy and decision making in the children and young people's workforce. We are working closely with colleagues and partners to build a strong programme of research that can be shared and accessed by a number of stakeholders.
