Code: SGC/20/1091 Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection - Zoom Webinar (EVENT FULL)

REMINDER - PLEASE READ AND KEEP SAFE THE ATTACHED DOCUMENTS THIS CONTAINS YOUR JOINING INSTRUCTION/ZOOM INVITE.



THIS TRAINING IS GOING TO BE DELIVERED VIA ZOOM.

IF YOU ARE A SOUTH GLOS EMLOYEE YOU MUST CONTACT THE IT DEPARTMENT FOR YOUR ZOOM LICENSE.

A training package has been developed to temporarily replace and fulfil the aims and objectives of one day face to face Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection course.

The package includes a remote distance learning element supplemented by a 4 hour online trainer led session.

The training is organised by South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board Training Group and is targeted at all staff from all agencies who are working directly with children, or adults who are parents.
Effective child protection depends not only on reliable and accepted procedures for all staff involved with children, but also on their skills, knowledge and judgement and the ability to work together co-operatively.
Staff with lead roles in child protection require specialised training in order to carry out their work with abused children and families.
Please note it is recommended to leave a minimum of 3 months between attending Inter Agency Child Protection and Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection.

The Purpose for the support groups



We realise that fostering can be really difficult at times. Perhaps the only people who really understand it are other foster carers and so therefore we want to give you a place to meet up.

There will be biscuits and/or cake, coffee, tea, and an opportunity for an informal chat at all of the meetings.

Although these will be informal meetings, each session will have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who don’t know anyone and feel awkward about coming along to a new meeting, to feel that they won’t be left alone on the side-lines.

Sometimes there will be speakers and topics as requested by the group, this will hopefully make it as relevant to your fostering as you like.

These sessions should be recorded on your Personal Development Plan (PDP).

Code: SGC/20/1411 Fostering Network - Foster Tax (Cancelled)

If you are new to fostering and wanting information about Tax and National Insurance Contributions, then this session is for you.

Amy Wilson, from The Fostering Network,  will be running a short workshop on Income Tax and National Insurance for foster carers, to help you understand the rules that apply to the income you get from fostering. 

Amy will run through the presentation and talk through the points.  Any questions that you have she will be happy to answer.

Fostering Network have also recently made a video of their tax workshop, which is available on their website.  This can only be accessed once your membership  has been processed, but once you have this, you will be able to return to the website video version should you need a recap. 

As you get full membership to fostering network it is also worth you knowing that as carers you can always call their membership helpline with specific questions about tax and national insurance.

Please note that by  booking onto this session, you are consenting to your email address being given to the trainer (who works for Fostering Network) so that they can send you a Zoom meeting request.
