Available to those based in the Falkirk area only, the course is aimed at:

  • Designated Managers who have responsibility for child protection within their agency
  • Named Persons, Lead Professionals and practitioners who are required to attend Child Protection Case Conferences and Core Group meetings as part of their role and remit

Attendance is required 9:30am – 4:30pm, and pre-course reading will be sent approximately 2 weeks beforehand.

The course aims to help participants:

  • develop their understanding of their own and others’ role and responsibilities in relation to child protection referrals, conferences and core groups
  • develop their understanding of statutory powers, duties, legal issues and good practice requirements that underpin child protection processes
  • develop their understanding of their contribution to multi‐agency assessment of risk and need, utilising the National Practice Model
  • develop an understanding of the components that make up the SMART child protection action plan
  • focus on the need to ensure the views of the child or young person and family are appropriately represented in all aspects of child protection practice.
