Training gap analysis

What is the gap analysis report?

This report builds upon the recommendations made in the DMSS report:

A review of training and materials which aim to support the children’s workforce to reduce the impact of childhood poverty and disadvantage  

 The gap analysis:

  • Provides information on the current training materials, tools and resources that incorporate poverty and disadvantage.
  • Provides a gap analysis of poverty and disadvantage training in the workforce.
  • Makes recommendations about the ongoing training needs of the workforce.

This report may be used by any practitioner who has an interest in or a need to understand child poverty and disadvantage.

It may be used to further develop knowledge and understanding about poverty and disadvantage of people who work with children and young people. It may also be used as a signpost to accessible poverty training resources that meet the needs of the workforce.
