To ensure children across Dorset are safe, healthy, independent and prosperous.

The Learning and Development team supports colleagues across Children's Services in achieving their outcomes for Children, Young People and families in Dorset. We work in collaboration and partnership with other Local Authorities, Colleges, Universities and training providers in achieving these aims.

We develop, commission, deliver and evaluate innovative and personalised learning and development opportunities. We also provide advice, guidance, facilitation and consultation regarding individual, team and service learning needs.

We also provide opportunities for continuous professional development (CPD) and routes to qualifications. We aim to contribute to a skilled, knowledgeable, competent and confident workforce to deliver good outcomes for our Children, Young People and families.
