Completing training can be challenging at the best of times, with this in mind we are holding a training support group. This will take place at Patchway Library, where we have pre-booked 4 computers and organised staff to be there to support you through online modules. We want to help the connected carers and short break carers complete mandatory training and see this as a supportive way to do this. SGO's are not required to complete mandatory training but are welcome to attend if they wish.
Please take advantage of this opportunity, supporting this session will be Training Officer Chris Hill, he will be there to help with answering questions or discuss queries.
If you have any questions, please don`t hesitate to contact Chris Hill on 07749003099 firstname.lastname@example.org
This webinar is specifically for all council-employed Adult Social Care practitioners: Social Workers, OTs, Senior Practitioners, Team & Service Managers.
It is a “core” internal training course which builds on and complements the existing multi-agency Safeguarding Adults training programmes that provide a foundation of knowledge and skills.
The course will enable all adult social care practitioners in South Glos Council to:
1. Update their understanding of the legal duties and principles in relation to safeguarding adults (e.g. within the Care Act, Mental Capacity Act).
2. Increase their confidence to work to national and local expectations and processes for safeguarding adults.
3. Refresh and refine their skills and knowledge around working with risk, effective decision-making and communication to promote confidence in adult safeguarding.

Strengths-based practice is a collaborative process between a person supported by services and those supporting them. It allows them to work together, drawing upon a person’s strengths and assets to achieve positive outcomes.
The introduction of the Care Act 2014 with its focus on wellbeing and early intervention required local authorities to ‘consider the person’s own strengths and capabilities, and what support might be available from their wider support network or within the community to help…when considering what else, other than the provision of care and support might assist the person in meeting the outcomes they want to achieve’ (Care and Support Statutory Guidance s.6.33. Department of Health and Social Care, 2017). The recent publication of the Department of Health and Social Care Strengths-based approach practice framework and handbook gives support to social workers and social care professionals in applying a strengths-based approach to their work with adults.
Our family settings and situations are dynamic and complicated and supporting people in the context of their families means working with complexity. Although it is often framed that way, complexity is not by definition a negative term. Strengths and assets are part of the complex picture, too, and both are promoted in the Care Act 2014. Complexity is built into the legislation around adult social care.
This one–day online workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to develop their understanding and skills in promoting strength-based practice when working with complexity.
The workshop will use a range of methods including PowerPoint presentation, breakout room discussion, practice scenario examples, video clips, offline individual exercises and group discussion to address the learning objectives. Delegates will also be provided with all workshop materials with additional resources and references for further reading.
All frontline practitioners, occupational therapists, social workers and workforce development teams.
The Virtual School value the time they spend with carers, and to enable this to be an even more successful partnership between school and home, have arranged four sessions to take place over the school year.
This fourth session is a being held as a twilight 'Drop in'. There is no specific focus for this session, rather it is a means for you to have access to the Virtual School and to raise any questions/concerns that you may have. Equally if there are any Virtual School updates or developments, these will be shared with you at this session.
