Code: BH/19/1167 Supporting Dyslexia and (Neuro)diversity in the Workplace

This course is perfect for HR departments and managers wanting to improve their understanding of hidden disabilities, and the small changes that make a big difference to accessibility and a harmonious workplace.

Understanding how to harness the varied skills and strengths of a diverse workforce is key to creating good company culture and success in the workplace.

In this course we will be exploring inclusive practice, and what can be done to enhance well-being and productivity in the workplace. Hidden disabilities can easily go unidentified and subsequently unsupported, so this course aims to raise awareness surrounding all types of disabilities, and what can be done to harness each individual's strengths and reduce their challenges.

Code: BH/19/0527 Training, Support & Development Standard 5 Workshop (Foster Carers)

Standard 5 - Understand the Development of Children and Young People
The Children’s Workforce Development Council developed a set of 7 Standards to ensure that foster carers are properly inducted into fostering by their Fostering agencies.  These Standards have arisen from the ‘Every Child Matters Agenda’ and from consultation with foster carers. The Department for Education (DfE) have now taken over responsibility for the Standards

Implementation of these Standards will be monitored by OFSTED during their inspections of Fostering Services. 

All foster carers are expected to successfully complete the workbook within 12 months.

All carers can demonstrate their knowledge of the Standards in a variety of ways, including attendance at training, attendance at the New Carers Support Group, reading the Foster Carer Handbook etc. When foster carers have successfully completed the Standards they will receive a Certificate of Completion.
