Code: BH/16/017 Planning for Permanence

This course is suitable for social workers, particularly newly qualified social workers or those involved in permanence planning for children, ie. practice managers, social workers, social work resource officers, community family workers and those involved in permanence planning for children.

For children in local authority care finding a stable, permanent placement is a key factor in securing positive outcomes. Children with a plan for permanence are most often living with the impact of difficult beginnings as they manage daily life with the uncertain outcome of legal proceedings. They then have to move to unknown futures and so they are likely to experience a range of intense and conflicting emotions throughout this process.

This introductory course will equip workers with the knowledge and skills to arrive at clear plans for permanence for children and to work directly with children in ensuring that they are supported through the process and beyond.
