Event description
These workshops are for South Glos Council Integrated Childrens Services staff only, i.e. who come into contact with young people and families. This includes managers who have responsibility for supervision, policy and decision-making.
The aim is to build good practice across children and young people's services, both challenging and supporting front line practitioners to be clear about what good practice looks like. There will be a focus on examples of good practice and support to staff to self evaluate their own practice against these examples. The aim is for everyone to share and learn from the things that went well, not so well, and what people would do differently to improve things.


Learning outcomes
This will be an interactive event and the learning outcomes are:

1. To understand the key components of a good quality assessment
2. To share experience and ideas of how to conduct meaningful assessments that enable you to lead to clear outcomes
3. To share tools that enable you to gather a breadth of information to understand children and their families to create informed assessments
4. To link the work covered within this workshop to the current audit findings and improve your own assessment practice to help on the journey to ‘good’.
