Proposed Guidance and Tool for Costing the Social Service Workforce
Desk Review Findings and Step By Step Guide
The purpose of this guidance is to advise policy makers and planners on how to apply a set of variables to their specific context to enable them to calculate the costs of human resources required to meet a target minimum ratio of social service workers per population, in the country in question. The guidance first discusses the essential steps that need to be taken to prepare for a costing exercise, and then the specific steps to take in a costing exercise for the workforce, which are outlined in the costing tool itself (to be released at a later date).
The Global Social Service Workforce Alliance and UNICEF developed the “Proposed Guidance and Tool for Costing the Social Service Workforce” with the intention that it be a working document. To ensure the guidance is as useful as possible please fill out this feedback form. Your insights will inform future revisions and updates.
