Achieving for Children Managers Induction: Developing 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 ...

Social Care Debate Forum - Secure Children Homes (Windsor and Maidenhead)

This is a one hour constructive discussion session for all Windsor and Maidenhead AfC social care staff to engage together to hear about your experiences. This session will help us understand some of the challenges faced and focus on the key issues in children's social care.

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 sessions is the accessibility and less framed structure of this approach.

The sessions are important, not just to hear your experiences but they enable two way, re ...

Your Emotional Intelligence: Navigating the relational world (EVENT FULL)

Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. It includes three skills: emotional awareness; the ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and the ability to manage emotions, which includes regulating your own emotions and cheering up or calming down other people.

Many experts now claim that emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) is more important than IQ - and is actually a better predictor of future success. It plays a critical role in quality of relationships and empathy - critical to ...

Child Sexual Abuse: Effective Assessment & Intervention Webinar (Windsor and Maidenhead)

This half day webinar seeks to explore and expand practitioners' understanding of the identification, assessment and treatment of child sexual abuse.

Child sexual abuse ‘involves forcing or enticing a child or young person to take part in sexual activities, not necessarily involving a high level of violence, whether or not the child is aware of what is happening’ (Working Together to Safeguarding Children, 2018). There is still a lack of knowledge regarding the experiences of children who have been abused. Taking this into consideration, the course will encourage delegates to share their th ...

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 ...
