To see dates of courses up to July 2017 and book your place please scroll to the bottom of this page.

Aims:

The aim of this course is that you develop a greater understanding of the following:-

  • Your role and responsibilities and how to deal with the challenges we all face
  • The impact of neglect
  • Children's levels of need
  • How to make a request for service from social care
  • What makes a good assessment
  • Disguised and non-compliance
  • Common themes from serious case reviews including why information sharing is essential - when and how. Why fathers and family history matter and why we must listen to children
  • Child sexual exploitation and children who present with sexually harmful behaviour
  • The Munro review of child protection and where we are now

Learning Outcomes:

This course will produce frontline workers who are better informed, more confident in their practice, in their ability to challenge and clearer about what their roles and responsibilities are.

Approach:

The course is a combination of facilitator input, interactive discussion, case studies and exercises.

Course Content:

  • This course is evidence-based and considers the latest research in the field. It will also draw strongly on the work of Brandon et al and the research around serious case reviews.
  • The case study is a real case and draws together many strands of the lessons to be learned from serious case reviews.
  • The exercises will challenge the delegates to think about their practice, in a multi-agency arena.
  • The Munro recommendations will be referred to throughout the 2 day course and the course will culminate in a reminder of the Munro review, the recommendations and where we are today.
