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 core training is a full day course from 9.15am-4.30pm, except where stated. The course is free, however if you need supply cover your agency will need to fund this.
