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 ...

The Role of the Foster Carer and Supervising Social Worker in Supporting and Promoting the Education of Children Looked After in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2

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). However, research shows that those with foster carers who are engaged with their education have a much higher chance of success than those who do not (e.g. Ofsted’s ‘Impact of virtual schools on the educational progress of looked after children’, 2012).

The aim of this course is to equip foster carers, supervising social workers and adoptive parents of early years and primary aged children with an understandin ...

eLearning: Stay Safe Online

There is so much cyber security advice available these days, many people find it hard to know where to start. 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 ...

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. ...

Cultural Awareness

Culture can describe beliefs, behaviours and traits of an ethnic, social or age demographic. The cultural background of any individual will impact on how they interact with others. A number of recent Serious Case Reviews (SCRs) have highlighted that professionals working with families from different cultural backgrounds would benefit from a skills and knowledge refresher. Learning from these reviews will feed into this course and in doing so the facilitator will aim to build on delegates understanding of how cultural background will influence the work they undertake with children and families. ...

This workshop will introduce participants to the key elements of the Solution Focused approach. The approach has shown real benefit working with vulnerable children and families, and a wide range of practitioners have found the approach flexible and adaptable, of relevance to assessment, action planning and intervention.

The Solution-Focused model emerged from the therapeutic arena of Family Therapy in the 1980s. Since then, its principles have been applied to a wide range of fields. The model requires practitioners to adopt a collaborative, personalised, strength-based approach. In additi ...

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.
https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2010/15/section/7

This session offers you the opportunity to check out terms you’ve heard and practices you’ve heard of and ask “Is it OK to…?” in a small group setting.
