I have done other online courses before, this one was the best.
This was an excellent opportunity to understand CAF and how this is to achieve better outcomes.

Overall I found this course interesting and comprehensive.
Suitable for all staff working with children and families. Clarifies how all agencies can contribute to successful support to families.
