The Common Assessment Framework (CAF or Early Help) is a standardised, shared assessment and planning framework used to help early identification of a child or young person’s additional needs.
It’s also used to promote co-ordinated service provision to meet these needs and is a key element of the Every Child Matters: Change for Children Programme.
This course will help you understand the background and principles of the CAF assessment. The course also provides useful advice and guidance to practitioners and agencies involved in CAF safeguarding and the assessment and reviews process.
The short, easily digestible course contains useful links, additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide as well as certification with CPD hours and learning objectives. The demo option allows you to see whether it’s suitable before you sign up.
This course is intended for all children’s workforce practitioners, that is anyone who works with children, young people and their families.
Although this course does form part of an induction programme for new starters, it is also intended for anyone who needs to improve their knowledge and continue their professional development.
It’s a great grounding for anyone who wants to know more about CAF, multi agency working and gathering information effectively regarding assessments.
