When CWDC closes in April 2012 our programmes will move to new organisations.

  • The social work programme will move to DfE.
  • The Early Years and Educational Psychology programmes will move to The Teaching Agency, a new executive agency of the DfE.
  • DfE will maintain the strategic lead for the CWDC Sector Leadership programme. This includes work with foster carers and short break carers, the young people’s workforce, those who work in residential care and people working with parents and families with multiple and complex needs. It also includes our activity to support safer recruitment, child poverty and leadership and management for children’s services.
  • Our activity to support integrated working will be led by the Children’s Improvement Board (CIB).
  • Specific arrangements for  the activity and tools for  each of these areas of work are being discussed with DfE. We expect to share more details with our stakeholders in early 2012.
