SIGNS OF SAFETY – ½ DAY BRIEFING
This training promotes that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. As such this course is relevant for practitioners and managers across the range of adult and children’s services and is for all practitioners who work with parents, carers, children and young people.
This course is suited for professionals who may be part of a multi-agency team such as a Team Around the Family (TAF) or Core Group
Aim: This briefing aims to provide partner agencies with a very basic understanding of the Signs of Safety approach.
Learning Outcomes: This briefing will
- Provide an introduction to the Signs of Safety Approach to enable participants to understand how the approach works
- Enable participants to start thinking about how to apply the approach to their own case work/practice
- Help partners and managers to consider how they will manage/ implement organisational processes that support and embed the training and practices in their own agencies
- Help agencies to have a common understanding of how the approach works, with the aim of enhancing collaborative working practices.
- Help them to identify the changes they should see in practice when practitioners use the approach within their own organisation
