Code: SGC/24/0031 The Record Business (Children's Services) & The Write Way (Adult's Services)

The Record Business
This course looks at transforming the quality of your approach and how you record that new way of working: your assessments, care plans, visit forms, & all written work will be clear, concise and bring to life what life must be like for each child or young person you're working with.

To do this the course will show you how to draw on your knowledge from research, experience and practice combined with an understanding of the child's needs within their family or the context in which the child lives.

It will show you how the facts-analysis-judgement approach works: and how it will help as you move towards the Signs of Safety way of working.

This course aims to make you confident in understanding what is relevant and meaningful and then show you how to write that down effectively.

Please watch this You Tube video before attending the course: The Record Business - Video

° defining your purpose; ° organising your evidence; ° thinking and structure; ° writing analytically; and ° presentation. We will also highlight the seven deadly sins of social care writing and recording and show you how to avoid them.
