Code: BH/21/0524 Court Work Skills for Social Workers (Microsoft Teams) (EVENT FULL)

This course will be delivered via Microsoft Teams for children's social workers whilst the current social distancing restrictions are in place. However this will be reviewed nearer the time to consider reverting back to face to face, all day training.

The session will be run between 9.30am - 11.00am with a break and will then resume again 11.30am - 1.00pm.

In order to make decisions regarding the steps that should be taken to secure the safety and well-being of a particular child, practitioners need a sound understanding of the law as it pertains to children, particularly that which governs the Family Courts. This course offers an introduction to the main principles, orders and legal processes that relate to children including the Children Act 1989 and the Adoption and Children Act 2002. Communicating effectively within this context is also crucial and this course provides an opportunity to practice oral evidence giving in a safe and supportive environment.
