Course Description

CHILD PROTECTION PRACTICES ? PROFESSIONAL DANGEROUSNESS ( TWO DAY COURSE) How confident do you feel about recognising the signs that indicate a child is being abused or is potentially at risk of harm? Due to the significant number of child deaths in Britain today all childcare professionals need to ensure they have the knowledge and skills necessary to safeguard children. In all child death enquiries there are common themes that with hindsight are obvious mistakes or oversights that affected the decisions professionals made. No childcare professional would consciously leave a child at risk of harm, but yet statistics tell us that between 1 and 2 children are dying every two weeks at the hands of a parent or carer in the UK. ABOUT THE COURSE This course is suitable for all childcare professionals at every professional level. It addresses the key issues that have emerged from fatal case enquiry reports. It aims to develop more confidence in professional assessments and observations, with a view to taking practices to a higher level. Many professionals fail to act on their observations due to a fear that they may be wrong. In all fatal case enquiries all childcare professionals involved are vulnerable, unless their practices are of a high standard and they have taken the necessary steps within their role to safeguard the child. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Professional dangerousness can occur within the practices of individual workers, within teams of professionals, within entire departments or between agencies. Often professional dangerousness occurs as a direct response to the actions of families where there are childcare concerns, as a result of our own discomfort within our role, or when workers who are responsible for child protection leave the child at risk of significant harm as a result of their assumptions, attitudes or behaviours. This two day course is offered to all childcare professionals (both practitioners and managers) within social services, health, youth offending teams, education, police, private and voluntary sectors who work with children and families.
