Event description


Overview of the Place to Live Request and Approval Process:  Includes all types of placement including out of authority and unregulated

These bite size sessions are designed to provide you with an update on placement planning processes. This includes the new process that will be implemented in respect of authorisation to search for placements, matching process for placements and review of placements. In addition the training will cover the authorisation process for unregulated and unregistered placements. The sessions will be co-facilitated with IT so that you will be provided with guidance on completing the relevant steps on Mosaic.

The training is aimed at all social workers and managers who are involved in placing children in all types of placement provision to ensure that you are aware of the revised approval processes and forms that will be required in order to initiate placement searches and approvals to place children. You will be introduced to the new forms and revised processes in respect of children’s placement, ahead of implementation of the new policy.
