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 TeamsEssential Information

This course is for practitioners who would like to develop and improve their knowledge of developmental skills needed for children to become competent hand writers.
Children need to see themselves as writers by understanding the meaning of their marks from an early age. Handwriting is a physical skill that children acquire after they become competent with many gross motor movements.
During this course we will explore the requirements of your continuous provision to ensure children use all of their physical skills in developing muscle control and co-ordination which, in turn, will impact on their mark making abilities. We will look at examples of writing and mark making across the early years and some of the interventions available to support handwriting.
