If you work with children, young people and their families you need to be aware of the Assessment Framework and what it means for you and the people in your care. The Framework is there to help you make safe and strategic decisions for the people who most need it.
This all-round introductory course is ideal for experienced care professionals, those who want to freshen up their knowledge or those who are just starting a career in social care.
This course will show you how use of the Assessment Framework provides evidence to help, guide and inform judgements about the welfare and safety of children in need and their families, from the first point of contact, through the processes of assessment, planning and review.
On course completion you will automatically get a certificate, along with your name, the CPD hours, the date and learning objectives. The course also contains plenty of additional resource materials, useful links and a useful refresher guide.
