About the course:

This three-day course goes through the assessment process, with the emphasis on skills to get the best possible information from the family. Two days are spent in the classroom going through legislation and thresholds, also best practice. Skills in interviewing families and children are highlighted and practiced to achieve the best possible and reliable information from the family.
The final day is spent conducting a ‘live’ assessment with professional actors which is then subject to group feedback.
This is a real ‘hands on’ course.
