At the end of 2019 SociaLink carried out a survey on what the Learning & Development needs of the social sector were, in this area. Although we weren’t overwhelmed with responses we pushed on and invited a selection of people to lunch to discuss our needs further. Read the results here, and let us know if you have an opinion also.
Summary of survey responses
- People are overloaded with their case work
- Prefer face to face learning in small groups during weekday and in short sessions 2 hours to ½ days.
- Topics favoured
