Participants will be expected to have a good working knowledge of safeguarding with experience of statutory and local child protection responsibilities and procedures.


Effective child protection depends not only on reliable and accepted procedures for all staff involved with children, but also on their skills, knowledge and judgment 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.

The learning outcomes for this training are designed to ensure that all participants receive updates in the latest child protection legislation, statutory guidance, local policies, procedures and professional requirements.

Code: SGC/21/1027 Conversations with Carers (Cancelled)

This course will explore the crucial role that carers play as a key partner of Adult Social Care. 

We will look at key data about carers, including in relation to some of the challenges that are commonly faced. You will also benefit from the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences, personal and professional, of caring and carers, and to learn from the lived experiences of carers including a guest speaker from South Gloucestershire. The Carers’ Support Centre will share their expertise in relation to working with and supporting carers over many years. Alongside colleagues, you will explore how to apply 3Cs, strengths-based approaches and legal literacy in your engagement with carers in line with South Gloucestershire Council ‘Carer Practitioner Guidance’. A key theme throughout the day will be recognising the positive impact that you, as a practitioner, can have in promoting the rights and wellbeing of carers and as a result, the wellbeing of adult(s) they care for.

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).

South Gloucestershire Council has launched a new interactive training programme that gives Health and Social Care Workers the skills, knowledge, confidence and practice to apply and comply with the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The programme is made up of interactive learning workshops. The new skills and knowledge gained from the workshops are then applied in the workplace and you will send us evidence. You'll be given feedback as you acheive the required good practice and compliance standard of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The programme is designed for Care Provider managers, Social Worker and Occupational Therapy staff and managers, nurses and all other professionals working in health and social care. You can select from a series of modules as relevant to your job which are listed below.

How the programme works -
You attend a module workshop
You then submit evidence of what you have learned in the workplace (usually within six weeks)
You receive feedback which may be shared with your employer.

Once you have achieved the required standard for compliance and good practice in line with the MCA code of practice you will be awarded a certificate for that module.

Code: SGC/21/1316 Wellbeing Coaching - South Glos staff only (Debra Parsons) (EVENT FULL)

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.

Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone.  Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.

Code: SGC/21/0715 Being Person Centred within 3 Conversations (EVENT FULL) (Cancelled)

This training is for Internal social care staff (OT, OTA, SW, SWA), care managers and for attendees wishing to do more in-depth study of the origins of Person Centred practice and how this fits with the SGC 3Conversations model.

‘If at all possible it would be good to have access to the handout during the session – ideally a hard copy where you can make notes’.

Content

• Discuss and share ideas and experiences of person-centred practice from our practice – how does it differ from other approaches?
• Engage with and discuss where these ideas originated and the philosophy behind them. We will look at social care and also education and the development of client centred counselling. Why have they been prevalent at different times?
• Become familiar with South Glos’ version of the 3 Conversations Approach and exchange ideas about it, and also how it can be used creatively to best support people in very different circumstances with different levels of need.
• Become familiar with a range of published person-centred thinking tools which can be used within the 3 conversations framework.
• Throughout the day we will identify personal attitudes, professional values and particular practice skills which support person-centred practice. What does it mean to ‘be’ person-centred?
• We will practice positive communication skills which are identified, including person-centred recording of ‘conversations’.
