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 ...

Self Harm & Suicide Awareness in Children & Young People (Cancelled)

“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

English as an Additional Language (EAL) - supporting young children learning to talk in a bilingual environment (Richmond)

Speech Language and Communication skills (SLCs) are a fundamental part of a child’s early development as reflected in the Early Years Foundation curriculum. Children with EAL require a modified environment to support language learning, even beyond the point they have started using English. Those children who have SLC difficulties alongside EAL require a skilled workforce working together to identify difficulties early and embed support in the child’s everyday environment to ensure the best outcomes for the child.

The course will equip attendees with up-to-date knowledge and research that in ...
