The Virtual Staff College

The Virtual Staff College designs and delivers professional development opportunities for those in leadership positions in local authority children’s services and other principal stakeholders such as HWBs, CCGs and other partners, working in the leadership, management and delivery of services for children, young people and families. The VSC is able to draw on its significant alliances with colleagues in Adult Social Care, the NHS, Public Health England, LGA and SOLACE to design bespoke leadership support that reflects the complex challenges that the system faces in the delivery of effective public services for the future.
