Code: BH/22/0411 BHSCP - Improving Outcomes for Looked After Children (EVENT FULL)

Course Aims:
Attendees will have an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills that enhance their contribution to improving outcomes (both emotional and physical) for those children that they are responsible for or in their care. It will highlight the essential partnership working required across health, education, social care, police and other partners to achieve optimum health.

Target Group: This multi-agency training opportunity is aimed at all practitioners and carers working or caring for looked after children or care leavers. This includes foster carers, residential workers, GPs, Health Visitors, School Nurses, Independent Reviewing Officers and Supervising Social Workers.

Messages from practice and research highlights that children and adults who are care experienced have higher rates of physical, emotional, social, and educational need, and are more likely to experience homelessness, teenage pregnancy,  prison  and problems with their mental and emotional health. They are also more likely to die younger. The majority of children who enter care have suffered significant harm, neglect and trauma, and some are children who have travelled alone from their country of origin to seek asylum in UK.

Code: BH/22/1209 Disability in the workplace for managers

Over the last year we have seen significant changes in the way we work, socialise, and learn. While organisations find new ways to adapt, it is important to ensure that employees continue to be supported and empowered to make a positive contribution in the workplace - that includes employees with disabilities.

With 1 in 5 people having a disability, and 1 in 7 people having a neurodiverse condition, most organisations already benefit from the skills and abilities that disabled employees bring to the workplace.

Barriers, such as widespread lack of awareness and adopting stereotypes, improper use of technology, work environments and a lack of inclusive practice in everyday activities and communication can have a moderating effect on employee engagement, and performance and subsequently affect the way staff engage with colleagues and clients.

This workshop will include case studies based on situations that may be familiar in the workplace. We aim to create a safe and open virtual environment that encourages you to engage with the course material, ask questions and work through case studies and scenarios to enhance your learning experience.
