This is a 1-day workshop delivered by Research in Practice. The session is aimed at: frontline practitioners who want to improve their analysis and critical thinking skills in the context of assessment. It may also be relevant for managers wanting to disseminate approaches to assessment to their team.

Prior to the workshop, delegates should have created a user account with RiP and then downloaded and read introduction to Analysis and critical thinking in assessment:

Once logged in to the RiP website, we recommend participants downloading the Analysis and critical thinking in assessment Handbook: (click link to access downloadable PDF).
Once downloaded, read pages 1-10 from the handbook.

Come with a live case in mind:
During the session a case will be used to model an approach to analysis and to facilitate case discussion. All participants must therefore come prepared to discuss a live case and to take an active role by either presenting a case for discussion, or facilitating a case discussion.

Please note that you do not need to bring any paperwork with you.

Code: SGC/19/104 Business Continuity Management Training Briefing

This is the Councils annual Business Continuity Management training briefing for Service Managers/ Team Leaders working in the council's Children, Adults & Health department. Business Continuity Management (BCM) is about identifying those parts of your service that you can’t afford to lose – such as People, Premises, Technology, Information, and suppliers/partners and planning how to maintain these, if an incident occurs. Any incident, large or small, whether it is natural, accidental or deliberate, can cause major disruption to your service. But if you plan ahead, rather than waiting for it to happen, you will be able to get back to business in the quickest possible time. Business Impact Analysis and Risk Assessment will enable you to better understand your service and build your service continuity capability. Business Impact Analysis (BIA) A BIA identifies and documents your key products and services; the critical activities required to deliver these; the impact that a disruption of these activities would have on your organisation; and the resources required to resume the activities. The Councils annual training briefing outlines: - The Councils business continuity arrangements - The structures used to manage business continuity events & associated plans. - Activation of the Councils & Departmental business continuity arrangements and - The role and composition of the Business Recovery Team & Senior Management Teams
