Course content

Workforce planning is recognised as one of the key development areas in health and social care. Effective workforce planning not only benefits good patient care, but can play a key role in helping to meet service and productivity targets by ensuring the right people are in the right jobs at the right time.

However, if workforce planning is to be effective in the health and social care sectors, it is important to develop the skills of the people responsible for achieving it.

Until recently, the provision of workforce planning training and education at a national level has been limited. The Postgraduate Certificate in Strategic Workforce Planning has been developed in response to the increasing demand for specific training and education of those involved in workforce planning
