ECC Workforce Activity

There are a number of challenges that face us all in relation to the future of the health and social care workforce in Essex that will require all partners to think and work differently. A group of representatives from across the council meet regularly to talk about provider issues related to workforce and actions the Council is doing to assist. This group is made up of representatives from:

  • Commissioning
  • Procurement
  • Quality Team
  • The Employment and Skills Unit
  • Economic Development 
  • Adult Social Care
  • Adult Community Learning

The group has good links with external partners including Skills for Care, CQC, training providers and the Chair of the Essex Employment Skills Board, Care Sector Group.


Current Activity - 2019/20

Our main focus for 2019/20 will be to work with providers (directly and through ECA) to build a plan of activity aimed at alleviating workforce issues. This will be through open discussion, as well as via surveys and previous feedback and data.

We will continue to build on previous workforce activity and develop new solutions working with providers and partners. 

Updates on progress will be communicated via this page.
