Our training gives professionals the knowledge:
Exercises and activities take place throughout the day to create confidence in the process. We use the Signs of Safety model and maintain a child focused approach in our work.
The training is suitable for staff who work with children and young people aged 0-18 years, or those who work with adults who have children. It is a multi-agency training course and is open to all agencies and services in Norfolk. It is a good opportunity to network and gain knowledge on services in Norfolk.
We recommend that at least one worker from your agency attend, even if you have previously attended either common assessment framework or family support process training. This is because the family support process now incorporates the Signs of Safety approach.
The Family Support Process training usually takes place as a full day classroom session. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions the training will be moving to two virtual 3 hour sessions over two mornings. There is no cost for this training.
The sessions will take place on Microsoft Teams. While the training is facilitated virtually, you are able to access the training at any date on offer. However, the Locality Partner Focus Officers will be hosting the sessions for their own areas. Therefore, if you would prefer to attend the session with your locality team then please book onto that session. The teams will be more likely to be able to answer any locality-based/district information such as details regarding the Early Help Hubs or services available for families in the area.
