Introduction to Childminding

‘Home-based childcare provides children and their families with a home-from-home childcare environment, which for the parents enables them to build up a friendly rapport with their child’s caregiver, and the process of walking into someone’s home, instantly puts you at ease, making the parent, as well as the child, feel comfortable.’ (Kathy Brodie, 2019)

Introduction to Childminding will introduce the learner to working as a home-based child carer such as a childminder or a nanny. This course will support learners to develop policies and procedures that are required for Ofsted registration ...

Self Harm & Suicide Awareness in Children & Young People

“Self-harm is more common than many people realise, especially among younger people. It's estimated around 10% of young people self-harm at some point, but people of all ages do. This figure is also likely to be an underestimate, as not everyone seeks help.”
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/self-harm/

“Self-harm is difficult to accurately estimate, but the highest number of admissions to hospital for self-harm is in the 15-25 year old age group” (Self Harm in Kingston Annual Public Health Report, H. Raison, 2014) http://www.kingstonccg.nhs.uk/Mental%20Health%20Strategy.pdf

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 ...

KRSCP: Online abuse: Diagnosis and Treatment Webinar

Internet safety for children is an area that many professionals and parents wish they had a better understanding of. This course aims to provide sufficient information to allow you to make informed choices, protect children from online dangers and ensure any issues are dealt with appropriately.

We don’t know exactly how many children and young people are affected by online abuse. This is because children may not tell anyone because they feel ashamed or guilty, they may not know who to tell or they may not realise they are being abused. According to Childline’s records, there were over 12,00 ...
