Abstract

This report outlines the level and range of the qualifications found and the very major challenges for achieving a fully qualified workforce posed by them; some of the implications of the findings; some of the wider considerations of which account needs to be taken if a strategy for achieving qualifications is to be successful; some of the unknown, and in some cases, unknowable, factors which will complicate planning and lead to a need for flexibility and adaptability; proposals for a qualifications framework which we consider is the minimum needed if the quality of care for looked after young people is to be improved; and some suggestions for how a fully qualified work force might be achieved.
