About the Six Steps Approach to Workforce Planning programme

The six steps have, for several years, been widely regarded as the method used to support workforce planning in health and social care.

This elearning programme can be used as a tool to support health and social care organisations with workforce planning. The programme is made up of six steps which will guide the health and social care professional through the principles and activities of planning.

It is aimed at anyone who engages in service redesign, restructures and reorganisations but can be appropriately scaled to suite the users’ need dependant on the size of the change.

It also is supported by a case study illustrating the steps that should be followed as part of the workforce planning process.
