This is the report of the workforce, education and training theme group. It recommends that current professional education and training reviews such as Shape of Caring and Shape of Training must ensure a child and young person focussed workforce to enable the modernisation of service provision to achieve improvements in the health outcomes of children and young people. This means care by professionals who have had high level dedicated education and training in working with children and young people, with services delivered in an environment which is appropriate to their age, levels of development, and needs.
