This module is the first level of continuing professional development (post-qualification) for social workers. The focus is on consolidating participants’ knowledge and skills in communicating with children, acquired during their professional qualifying programmes.

The module is delivered in a workshop format (8 x 3 hour monthly sessions) with an explicit emphasis on pedagogical approaches that encourage learning from experience.

The Talking and Listening to Children research project’s web-based digital resources provides the framework for the module, with practitioners equipped with a ‘Kitbag’ for use in their interactions with young children and their families.

This module enables you to meet the requirements of the relevant Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) domains and the Knowledge and Skills Statements.

You will have access to the University’s Library and will benefit from peer support throughout the programme
