Birmingham Future Council Programme
Birmingham City Council will be winding up its Futures Programme. It was set up in response to the recommendations in the Kerslake Report. Its intention was to address the improvements required in children’s safeguarding, education governance and the corporate health of the organisation.
Over the summer it will be re-testing its purpose, values and behaviours to ensure that they still have strong currency amongst those in Birmingham City Council. At the same time, the Leader and Cabinet, collaborating with the other group leaders, will review and reset the vision, priorities and priority outcomes to ensure they fully align to Cllr Clancy’s ambitions and mandate. And, importantly, will also be working closely with partners to get these right for Birmingham.
The future intention is to establish a workforce Improvement Hub which will provide Birmingham City Council with the professional learning and development, support and capacity to harness all of the great ideas and innovation around the council and bend them to delivering the council’s vision, etc. Read more from Mark Roger's Chief Executive, Birmingham City Council's blog
