Managers are responsible for the management of individual and team performance. This blended online training course will explain the Council's Personal Development and Performance Review (PDPR)) process. The workshop focuses on understanding what is required of managers in this process, practising the skills to carry out effective and positive meetings, understanding objective setting and making the PDPR process meaningful and engaging for all staff. There is an online course which gives you more information about the expectations of you as a manager in this process.
This course is particularly useful for council managers who are new to carrying out PDPRs are is provides you an opportunity to ask questions and discuss good practice with other council colleagues.
Please take some time to review the PDPR skills for manager’s online course and read the quality standard and guidance notes ahead of the training day.
This session is designed for workers who need to: Know about the introduction of the Signs of Safety framework in the council and partner agencies, and understand the basic concepts of Signs of Safety to assist them in their job role. This 3-hour session is relevant to employees who: - will not be using the Signs of Safety approach directly with families, but will see it in practice and need to understand its simplest form - need an introduction to the approach before they go on to do more specific role-relevant training. These half-day workshops are provided at no charge to South Glos Children’s Partnership partner agencies. As with all the local inter-agency courses though, a 'no show' on the day will result in a £30 per person 'penalty' fee to the agency.
If an employee needs to learn more about using the Signs of Safety model in their job role, they will also want to book themselves onto a 'Signs of Safety In Practice' workshop. These run regularly during afternoons on the same days as the morning 'awareness' workshops. Delegates need to book on those afternoon workshops separately.
Delegates must have already attended the Signs of Safety Awareness session before booking on this workshop. They can either have done that on an earlier date or by attending the morning of this course date.
This 'SoS In Practice' session offers the opportunity to explore and practice the model. It is aimed at the Safeguarding Lead within a single setting, team or organisation: employees actively involved in assessments, CP Conferences, Children in Need meetings, such as Designated CP Leads in Schools, relevant operational managers or practitioners in Early Years settings, Health and the voluntary sector. Following the course those practitioners will want to think about how they then ensure others in their work-setting get a basic awareness of Signs of Safety, for example via a short internal cascade meeting for key staff etc. These half-day workshops are provided at no charge to South Glos Children’s Partnership partner agencies. As with all the local inter-agency courses though, a 'no show' on the day will result in a £30 per person 'penalty' fee to the agency.
