FutureSocial Programme Board met at the BVSC on Friday 28th February.
A good attendance saw an efficient meeting chaired by Emma Bennett, DCS City of Wolverhampton.
Siobhan Hughes was attending her first meeting of the board in her capacity as one of the recently appointed co-chairs of the region Principle Social Worker Network (PSWN) as was
Stuart Bembridge who is the new link between the project and the DfE.
A presentation on Workforce Data was one of the key aspects of the meeting and this item was presented by Kelly Stark, Business and Intelligence Manager at Wolverhampton’s insight team. The regional return showed some significant improvements in some identified priorities within the region which also showed favourably against the national data which had been released the day before.
Other agenda items included an update on the progress of NAAS, the evaluation process of the FutureSocial Programme and on exciting new work on participation.
The next meeting of the Board is presently scheduled for 24th April.
