Author: Pete King and Justine Howard
Date: August 2022
This study gives an insight into the play workforce in Wales. It focuses on three overlapping areas: strategy, links between the strategic and practice, and the play workforce.
The study focuses on those who work directly with children and young people. To inform the study, data was gathered through online surveys, interviews and a focus group.
The executive summary features a list of 16 findings, along with an analysis of the results including comparisons between the 2021 findings and those from the last workforce study in 2008. These findings will be used to inform the Play Wales Workforce Development Plan.
