Safer Recruitment (Multi-agency)

Research, experience and learning from serious case reviews illustrates the importance of strong and effective recruitment and selection procedures that help deter, reject or identify people who might abuse children, or who are otherwise unsuited to working with them. If you recruit staff and/or volunteers into the children and young people’s workforce, you should be trained in safer recruitment practices.

Essential Supervision Skills

"Supervision can, at the very least, allow, albeit briefly, the doors to be shut, the noise to be reduced, and a quiet space for satisfying professional conversation." (Davys and Beddoe, 2010)

This session has been designed specifically for managers that are not in a social worker role and will be facilitated over a one day training session. It will equip managers with the skills to improve their supervision practice in order to support staff wellbeing and effectiveness in stressful working environments.

The course is for practitioners that have line management responsibilities.

What we think about fathers (and why we might think that)

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 ...
