Lunch and Learn Session: Regulation 24 Placements

This is a one hour session at lunch time for both AFC operational area staff to come together, share best practice, and refresh knowledge.

In Achieving for Children we think it is really important that teams and services are able to meet up regularly. What sets this concept apart from other courses is the accessibility and less framed structure of this approach.

The lunch and learn sessions are important, not just to share a level of expertise but they enable two way, regular communications among employees from different parts of AFC. With practitioner attendance we will be able to enco ...

Working with Young Fathers

Over several decades one of the key issues that is consistently highlighted in serious case reviews (see Brandon et al (2013), Neglect and Serious Case Reviews; Ofsted: Ages of Concern – Learning Lessons from Serious Case Reviews (2011)) and academic research is the failure to effectively and systematically engage with and assess fathers and other men as a potential risk or resource for children. This is a well-recognised systemic and cultural issue, which is rooted in the understandings of men and fatherhood prevalent within social care systems, and in social care systems’ responses. Despite ...

Achieving for Children Managers Induction: Managing your team

Managers have a huge role to play. “A single point improvement in management practices (rated on a five-point scale) is associated with the same increase in output as a 25% increase in the labour force or a 65% percent increase in invested capital. (Department for Business Innovation and Skills, 2012). This shows managers can make a vastly significant impact in their team.

At Achieving for Children we want to empower our new managers to understand the policies and procedures of the organisation. We want to enable managers to embed these principles into their management practice so that t ...

Encouraging the voice of the child during Engagement & Assessment

This course was specifically developed to meet the findings from 'The voice of the child: learning lessons from serious case reviews a thematic report of Ofsted's evaluation of serious case reviews from 1 April to 30 September 2010’ (Ofsted, 2010).

This thematic report published by Ofsted ‘highlighted the importance of seeing, observing and hearing the child’ (The voice of the child: learning lessons from serious case reviews, 2010), which makes this course all the more valuable, relevant and unfortunately still current. Over the last few years empirical data from research still indicates t ...

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) Basic Awareness of Boys

The key findings from recent serious case reviews involving children who have been exploited is the necessity for a multi-agency response to addressing the issue of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) in communities, boroughs and nationwide. Local authorities, the metropolitan police and other agencies in Windsor and Maidenhead are working in partnership to identify children and boys at risk of CSE.

According to research carried out by UCL Security and Crime Science (UCL Engineering) , a young man is highly unlikely to disclose to a professional that they are at risk of or experiencing CSE. The ...

Attachment: An Introduction - Level 1

Attachment theory is one of the key theories and approaches which offers a way of thinking about the development of children and young people.

It is concerned with the ways in which a child's experiences of early relationships and their environment impact upon them psychologically, and how these processes may develop and alter across the lifespan.
