|Event Date/Time: Sep 22, 2011||End Date/Time: Sep 22, 2011|
|Registration Date: Sep 15, 2011|
This conference brings together key academic thinkers, policy makers and employers to explore issues facing the voluntary and community workforce in a time of change.
It is jointly organised by the Third Sector Research Centre and the Work Futures Research Centre, who will share current research on trends and motivations in the third sector workforce. They will discuss what these trends tell us about the future of the sector and how the sector's workforce might be affected by current policy.
Afternoon workshops, facilitated by key experts, will offer insight into:
how to develop skills to meet future needs
how to undertake strategic analysis of your future workforce needs
how to manage cross sector working
how to respond to the environmental challenge
The conference will conclude with a panel discussion with representatives from the Office of Civil Society, UNISON, and the sector, to explore alternative perspectives on the third sector workforce of the future.
