eLearning: Information Sharing

Event/course Code EDU 20/335
Event/course type E-learning
Event Introduction ‘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 delivering better, more efficient services that are coordinated around the needs of children, young people and families.

This elearning course is essential for all practitioners working with children, young people and their families, whether new to post or to refresh their knowledge and understanding.
