Code: BH/18/1177 Children's CPD Module - Risk & Decision Making in Children's Services

To log your interest for this CPD module please click on “request a place" by 30th June 2018.

This 30 credit module is designed to enable senior practitioners and managers in children’s services to develop their knowledge and skills in current law, policy and research relating to risk analysis and decision-making and consider how these can be applied in day-to-day practice and/or management across a range of work place settings and roles.

You will learn about key perspectives, theory and the evidence base for risk and you will be taught in large groups. Additional smaller seminar groups provide a space for practitioners and managers to consider role-related challenges. Both inform work-based action learning projects, as well as critical reflection and the development of risk management practice. Peer feedback through ‘sharing’ progress on risk projects in seminars and via the virtual learning environment is an assessment requirement, and evidence of learning is incorporated into your portfolio.

Themes covered include:

Key concepts and challenges in decision-making
The legal, policy and practice context
Perspectives on Risk
Supervision, accountability and working in a political environment
Risk and risky situations: safe and creative strategies
Learning from serious case reviews
Working with Denial

This module can be taken as part of a PGCert, PGDip or as a stand alone module. See application information under 'attached document' for further details of modules, pathways and awards.
