The role of the Foster Carer and Supervising Social Worker in Supporting and promoting the education of children looked after and previously looked after at Key Stages 4 and 5 (Windsor and Maidenhead

It is widely recognised that nationally, children looked after (LAC) and previously looked after do not attain on a par with all other children (e.g. Education Matters in Care, 2012).

The aim of this course is to equip foster carers, supervising social workers and adoptive parents of secondary and post 16 aged children with an understanding ...

Supervision Skills: Making the Most of Supervision

‘It is as though the confluence of the search for certainty in detecting and eradicating abuse and neglect, combined with the belief (and management oversight) that following rules will further reduce the risk of missing a case, has replaced the space of reflection on professional judgement which actually protect children and young people’ (Munro Review of Child, 2010).

Supervision is an essential element of Social Care; effective supervision is linked to improved outcomes for service users. This course is designed for frontline staff working with children, young people and families. It wil ...
