Code: BH/19/0526 Training, Support & Development Standard 4 Workshop (Foster Carers)

Standard 4 - Know how to Communicate Effectively
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.

Code: BH/19/0754 Advanced Behaviour Change (2 Day Course) (EVENT FULL)

This is a two-day practice focused self-reflective course providing the learner with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, skills and confidence to engage in brief interventions to facilitate behaviour change with people whatever their readiness to change.

In between the sessions, participants will be asked to record a short 'behaviour change' intervention to then share on day 2, with the intention of gaining constructive feedback to affirm and enhance practice. Participants will develop skills in motivational interviewing, specifically differentiating between change talk and commitment language, and learning how to elicit and shape the two to strengthen the outcome of the interventions.

By the end of the course participants will have an enhanced toolkit of strateges they can apply when working with inidviduals to facilitate behaviour change over a short or longer term basis, including working with more complex cases and dealing with resistance.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is designed for practioners who understand and have practiced the fundamental elements of facilitating behaviour change, but now seek more advanced training in it.

We would encourage participants who have at least 2 years experience of working one-to-one with individuals in a change facilitation setting to attend.

On requesting a place you will be sent a Behaviour Change questionnaire which you should fill in and return to the trainer before the course start date.

Code: BH/19/1149 Adults CPD - Practice Education Stage 1

To apply for this module please register your Expression of Interest before the 24th June 2019.

Practice Education learning is based on the Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) which are an ‘employer endorsed’ set of standards meaning employers can endorse whether professionals have met the standards.

Social work professionals who Practice Supervise a social work student on placement need to complete the relevant Practice Education learning, in this case: Practice Supervisors – Practice Education Stage 1.

What’s changing?

From 2019/20 Practice Education Stage 1 will no longer be taught through the Universities and will instead be an employer endorsed in-house programme.

This will be a five day programme of workshops and reflective group supervision led by our Practice Education Consultants (PECs). 

The programme will run between September 2019 and April 2020 (dates TBC shortly).

The new in-house Practice Education Stage 1 programme will not be accredited and so will no longer carry PG level credits or count towards post-graduate awards at the Universities.

The workshops are for practitioners with minimal experience of teaching and assessing others who wish to develop their skills. 

You will be a Practice Supervisor assigned to a social work student while undertaking the course.
You will not have full responsibility for the assessment of the student as you will work alongside a Stage 2 qualified Practice Educator. 
The module has been designed to meet Practice Educator Professional Standards(PEPS) for Social Work.
You will learn via a range of teaching methods including workshops and group discussion. 

You must also be in a position where you can be observed fulfilling practice assessments and teaching on at least one separate occasion by an experienced Practice Educator.
