eLearning: Information Sharing

‘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 delive ...

eLearning: Nutrition and Healthy Eating

By teaching children healthy eating habits, and modelling these behaviours, you can help children maintain a healthy weight and normal growth. Also, the eating habits your children pick up when they are young will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle when they are adults.
Nutrition and Healthy Eating is aimed at nursery practitioners including cooks and chefs, as everyone has a responsibility to support the health and wellbeing of children they care for.

Depression in Children & Young People

According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, ‘depression usually starts in the teen years, more commonly as children near adulthood. They state that ‘feeling sad is a normal reaction to experiences that are stressful or upsetting. However, when these feelings go on and on, take over your usual self and interfere with your whole life, it can become an illness’ (2016).

Depression rates in children and young people have increased by 70% in the last 25 years (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2016). It is important that those working with children and young people know the signs to look out ...

Online safety and risky behaviour for foster carers (Windsor and Maidenhead)

The internet has a huge influence on children and young people, both directly and indirectly affecting almost every aspect of their life. This influence is mostly positive, providing an essential tool for learning, building relationships and helping them find their place in the world.

With social media, apps and the web now at our fingertips, it’s getting harder to oversee and enforce what children can and can’t do online. No longer are the dangers limited to the family PC – making it increasingly difficult to supervise and monitor internet usage.

As a foster carer, dealing with a child’ ...
