eLearning: Stay Safe Online

There is so much cyber security advice available these days, many people find it hard to know where to start. Some organisations struggle to explain why cyber security is something that all staff should care about. Even larger organisations (with dedicated training resources) find it difficult to explain the technical aspects of cyber security in ways that are relevant to their staff, so that they can help keep their organisations (and themselves) safe from cyber attack.

Deciphering the Benefit System - Inset (Placement Commissioning Team)

In 2013 our benefit system was transformed, introducing Universal Credit. The new approach was designed to simplify the process for people needing support. Yet the system still seems overly complex, ineffective and so often families we work work cannot or will not access the system.

This workshop looks to understand this system further and enable people to access it. This event will look to address the fears and prejudice surrounding benefits, clarify misconceptions and build understanding of the processes so staff can support young people and families to get the support they are both enti ...

Supporting the education of your looked after children - training for social workers, personal advisors and independent reviewing officers

There is still a great gap between educational outcomes for all
children and for those Looked After (e.g. Education Matters in Care, 2012). Considering their statutory duties, social workers have a vital role in improving both educational outcomes and subsequent life chances for looked after children (LAC).

This course aims to support social workers, personal advisors and independent reviewing officers in reviewing their role, in working in partnership with the virtual school and educational settings to support their children and young people so that outcomes are improved.
