Achieving for Children is a social enterprise company created in 2014 by the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames to provide their children's services. In August 2017, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead became a co-owner of AfC, and we now deliver children's services across all three boroughs.
As a social enterprise we are able to provide bespoke children's social care and education support services to other local authorities, schools and partners in the education, health, social care and criminal justice sectors.
The Children's Workforce Development Team form a part of AfC and we are responsible for the commissioning, delivery and quality assurance of all training for those working with children, young people and their families across Kingston, Richmond, Windsor and Maidenhead local authority areas.
We offer a large variety of continuing professional development opportunities, this includes; one day courses, conferences, network meetings, access to e-learning and accredited training. All programmes are open to a wide range of professionals from teachers, social workers and early years' practitioners to volunteers, Health Visitors and the Police.
As well as LSCB endorsed safeguarding training, we offer comprehensive and highly evaluated training programmes on a wide range of relevant topics. If you work with children, young people and their families we are here to help meet your training needs. We continually seek to strengthen our offer by learning from innovation and by investing in the skills and professional abilities of our workforce.
