Do you work with children in need and their families? Do you need to sharpen up your awareness of the different stages of the foster care process? If you’re involved at any stage (and in any capacity) of the assessment of children or the approval process for foster carers or just need to brush up on your Children Act guidance or knowledge, then this is the ideal course for you.
This course – also available as part of our Children’s Workforce Induction bundle – will equip you with the skills you need to understand the two key information gathering stages of the foster care process.
In this child in need assessment course you’ll learn about the differences between Stage 1 and Stage 2 and gain a solid foundation of understanding around the process. You’ll learn how basic information is gathered at Stage 1 and then built upon with more detailed information at Stage 2.
You’ll also learn about the importance of the assessment process and fostering process to the welfare of a young person/young people.
On completion, you’ll get a course certificate, complete with your name, CPD hours, the date and learning objectives. This course also contains additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide.
