Code: BH/19/1038 Children's CPD Module - Observing, Communicating & Engaging with Children & Young People

To apply for this module please register your Expression of Interest before the 17th May 2019.

This 30 Masters credit level module for social workers and other professionals who need to deepen their capabilities for understanding, engaging and communicating with children and young people in complex, contested and sensitive situations.

You must be in a role where you are regularly engaging and communicating directly with children and young people as the assignment requires reflection on, and evidence from, actual practice. Applicants may have previously undertaken child observation exercises in their qualifying training, but this module offers a much more in-depth and critical experience designed
to underpin specialist practice.

Please note - there is a requirement to observe a child not known to you on six occasions as part of this module. You need to factor this in to your planning and discuss with your manager before applying.

Code: BH/19/1367 Back on Track

There are a higher number of parents who are dependent on alcohol in Brighton and Hove than the national average.  We know that for many parents it may take lots of conversations with different people for them to recognise they are drinking to a concerning level and to think about getting help.  

This course is aimed at any frontline staff who might be working with families, who may have an opportunity to speak to them about their alcohol use. It will focus on the skills that staff who may not have had experience or knowledge of alcohol and substance misuse can use if they have concerns about a family they are working with, and where they can signpost and refer parents and families to in Brighton and Hove. There will also be opportunity to discuss past or current situations where you might have had concerns about a parents alcohol use.
