Code: SGC/19/170 Baby Quality Toolkit and Toddler Quality Toolkit Information Session (cf)

This information session is for practitioners and managers working with babies and toddlers who are looking at ways to reflect and improve on practice.

Do you want to provide an environment that really supports your babies and your two year olds? This can be the way forward in facilitating the best possible start to enable them to flourish and learn.

The toolkits will enable practitioners to reflect on their current practice and how they meet the specific needs of babies and two year olds, keeping the child at the centre – ‘what is it like for me in this setting?’

This session will provide leaders, managers and childminders with the information they require in order to make a decision regarding purchasing these support packages from the Early Years Team.

Attending this session does not commit you in any way to purchasing these materials.

Code: SGC/18/213 Defensible Decision-Making

This 1-day workshop is for South Gloucestershire Council Adult Care practitioners ONLY. Its key purpose is to equip staff with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make judgements and clearly record the rationale for decisions that are robust, supported by the relevant evidence and defensible when scrutinised by others. Practitioners need to assess people’s needs and their desired outcomes and then make decisions that keep that person and their carers at the heart of the assessment and support planning process. In all aspects of their work they have to find ways to balance a number of competing pressures including arranging person-centred care and support that meets Care Act and Mental Capacity Act requirements, whilst also managing risk and safeguarding issues effectively, using the organisation’s recording policy and using resources effectively.
