Code: SGC/20/0600 Signs of Safety Awareness (Microsoft Teams Webinar)

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.
