How to use the framework

Individuals and managers can use the framework to think about personal and team development. Children's Trusts can use it to help them develop their workforce. It can help us all to understand and make the most of our roles within an integrated workforce.

Children's Trust tool

We have built an online tool to allow Children's Trusts to assess themselves against the framework. It takes them through a series of steps to work out where they are currently positioned on a spectrum from ‘fragmented' to ‘integrated and high quality'. These steps include gathering the views of a wide range of people from the children and young people's workforce and planning what to do next to develop an integrated and high quality workforce and improve outcomes for children and young people.

If you are not from a Children's Trust you can walk through the online tool for trusts and see how it works.
