Getting it right - training your workforce

Training your workforce: Getting the most out of training and development

Effective workforce planning and development has never been more important. The workforce needs to be capable of delivering new services, responding to emerging issues and risks, and supporting people to better manage their own care. Training and development is one type of workforce development activity that may be used to achieve this.

This guide presents a strategic approach to training and development that is underpinned by workforce planning to ensure investments in people are being made in the right areas, for the right people, and in the right ways to yield the right results.

The training your workforce guide is part of the Getting it right series of resources.
