eLearning: Information Sharing

‘Information sharing is vital to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. A key factor identified in many serious case reviews (SCRs) has been a failure by practitioners to record information, to share it, to understand its significance and then take appropriate action’ (HM Government, Information sharing, 2015).

Research, feedback from national and local SCRs and Lessons Learnt tells us that early intervention and child protection are both dependent on good information sharing practice. Therefore, appropriate and timely information sharing is the key to delive ...

Preparing to Work in Home based childcare Module 6 - Understanding the value of play in promoting children’s learning and development (Cancelled)

Why is play important? Do you know how to play? Do you encourage play?

We all know that encouraging play can only be a good thing, but how do you as a childcare practitioner achieve a good balance of child-initiated and adult-led activities?

In excellent play encounters, practitioners are thinking critically and carefully about physical behaviours, the language they used and the environments they create. This course will explore the innate drive for play, the need for children to play. Facilitators on the course will challenge delegates to ...

eLearning: Stay Safe Online

Some organisations struggle to explain why cyber security is something that all staff should care about. Even larger organisations (with dedicated training resources) find it difficult to explain the technical aspects of cyber security in ways that are relevant to their staff, so that they can help keep their organisations (and themselves) safe from cyber attack.

Equally, many small or medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and charities may not have the resources to put any cyber security ...

Sustained Shared Thinking for Early Years Practitioners (Cancelled)

Theories about sustained shared thinking have been around for a long time. So why is it important to early years practitioners now? In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) it states that sustained shared thinking should be a part of children’s creativity and critical thinking (EYFS 4.3). There are elements of sustained shared thinking across all the areas of learning and it can help to develop and strengthen attachments. Therefore, being able to create opportunities for sustained shared thinking is valuable.

During this session, delegates will have the opportunity to observe sustained ...

Introduction to Gender Identity & Trans Awareness

Throughout history, life has not been easy for transgender people. Although things may have improved, trans people still face discrimination and many challenges today. A good understanding of trans people is important not only for good practice, but because “gender reassignment” is a protected characteristic under the Equalities Act 2010.

Introduction to Systemic Principles

Systemic principles have been influential in contemporary social work practice in a number of local authorities nationally. The London Borough of Hackney developed the ‘Reclaiming Social Work’ model, which has resulted in risk assessment and management utilising reflective clinical supervision (Pendry, 2012).

These approaches are not limited to social work practice alone and have uses within a number of other disciplines, including education and mental health services. Multiple ways of understanding enables the ability to develop different ideas of knowing, resulting in greater solutions. ...
