Impact: policy development in England
Policy Impact
https://www.cilip.org.uk/page/PublicLibrarySkillsStrategy
Impact on CILIP policy
• The impact of the Workforce Mapping project on our work and strategic
direction has been fundamental. In the face of a real paucity of evidence,
we frequently have recourse to it to guide our decisions.
• Used in the development of policy, position statements and advocacy with
stakeholders
• We have used the extrapolation for the estimated size of the workforce to
inform our Business Plan and targets for growth over recent years (CILIP
Action Plan 2016-20)
• Supported us to develop the new membership model
• Influences marketing and planning of qualifications
Workforce Development Strategy 2019-2024
The Workforce Development Strategy sets out our priorities to 2024:
• Position the profession as an attractive, accessible and aspirational career choice
• Attract, retain and develop diverse talent
• Build a future-ready workforce with digital skills
• Prioritise diversity, equality, representation and inclusion
• Maximise the value of an intergenerational workforce
• Embrace ‘leadership at every level’
• Connect the supply of skills with changing employer demand
• Work in partnership with learning providers to ensure access to skills and CPD
• Define a new, inclusive and progressive view of ‘professionalism’ in our sector
• Clarify our own regulatory or developmental role
Workforce Development Strategy 2019-2024
Success criteria:
• The workforce is more diverse and representative of our communities
• Employers are creating more opportunities for Information Professionals
• There is greater mobility within and outside the Information Profession
• Employers are able to recruit and retain people with the right skills and aptitudes
• Our skillset is recognised and valued
• More Information Professionals continue to up-skill and retrain to stay ahead of service needs
• There is a new generation of leaders that have come through the Information Profession
• There is a sector-wide understanding of professionalism
Diversity and Equalities Action Plan
CILIP published this action plan in 2017 following the Workforce Mapping.
The Equalities and Diversity Action Plan sets out our actions in five areas:
• CILIP as an organisation
• Diversity & the membership
• Diversity & the profession
• Celebrating diversity
• Diverse and inclusive library, information and knowledge services
https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.cilip.org.uk/resource/resmgr/cilip_new_website/about/
equalities/equalities_and_diversity_act.pdf
BAME Steering Group
LGBTQ+ Steering Group
Continual review of ‘Professionalism’
• An open, inclusive and progressive definition of libraries,
information and knowledge as a ‘profession’
• Relaunch of more streamlined Professional Registration
process
• What defines a professional?
• New routes into library and information as a career
• Increased Knowledge Management Offer
Apprenticeships
• Level 3 Apprenticeship approved October 2018
• https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/apprenticeship-
standards/library-information-archive-services-assistant/
• Different system in Scotland – we are currently assessing need and
demand for similar standard
Future Careers
• Career information and support being
upgraded on CILIP website
• More event content for new professionals
• How do factors such as AI and big data
influence our professional skills?
2020 and beyond
“The only future we should
accept as a profession is one
which fully and explicitly
represents the communities it
serves” – Nick Poole, CILIP CEO
