As part of the Council’s Creating Strong Communities Programme there was a recognition that its implementation would require a different way of working within the Council as well as with partners and the local community.

To support this requirement a Children’s Workforce Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) has been developed to define the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for anyone who works, volunteers or leads work with children, young people and families within North East Lincolnshire.

The PCF has been designed to improve the quality of early prevention and help work, whilst promoting and encouraging effective individual and professional practice between agencies. It also enables the building of respectful and collaborative relationships within North East Lincolnshire’s community as well as within its multi-agency workforce.

Implicit within the PCF are the four elements of the Creating Strong Communities Programme (Signs of Safety, Restorative Practice, OBA and Family Group Conferencing). This is to ensure that these form the basis of how we work now and in the future.

The PCF also includes key areas which workers need to demonstrate proficiency in. These areas include abuse, neglect, child sexual exploitation, emotional health, equality of opportunity for children with disabilities, bullying and healthy weight for children and young people.

The PCF can be used to commission services by the articulation of required capabilities; by learning providers to understand the workforce needs of employers and employees; by strategy leads, service managers and team leaders as the foundation for a performance management framework; by higher education institutions, to understand the needs of employers and students working in children’s services; by individuals to be used as a tool to further their personal and professional development.

Following development and consultation, the PCF is now ready for implementation and is being used within the 0-19 Programme for its workforce development, which will include a skills audit to identify any required developmental gaps as well as highlight any emerging skills requirements.


In North east Lincolnshire Council we are working towards embedding the restorative approach through everything we do. Please click here for more information.


As part of the Creating Stronger Communities Programme there has been extensive workforce and partner development in two main areas which has enabled and developed a new framework for practice which includes Signs of Safety and Restorative Practice. Please click here for more information


This is a method of safety planning with children and families, which uses a common language, is solution focused and encourages workers to assist families in taking responsibility for resolving issues and keeping their children safe.
