15 November 2021 — Working with Ethnic Minority Families and Child Protection
Course: Working with Ethnic Minority Families and Child Protection
Date: 15th November 2021 — 9.30am-1.00pm
Trainer: Melanie Philips, CSCP Safeguarding Trainer
Location: Virtual — Zoom
The aim of the training session is to enhance the knowledge and confidence of multi-agency practitioners in safeguarding ethnic minority children and protecting them from abuse, by exploring the skills required for safe and culturally competent practice.
— To discuss attitudes and values in relation to black and minority children and families and the impact that these have on practice with children in need or in need of protection.
— To discuss the nature of ‘culture’ and cultural stereotyping and discuss how children can be safeguarded from significant harm whilst still ensuring that cultural diversity is respected and accounted for, working towards culturally competent practice.
— To draw upon theory and research in relation to ethnic minority children and families with particular reference to recent serious case reviews.
This event is suitable for professionals in all Working Together Groups.
Due to the current social distancing restrictions in place in light of COVID-19, the CSCP has worked with our experienced trainers to ensure that safeguarding training can still be made available to multi-agency partners. Although, there will be some changes for all delegates to note prior to booking:
— Delegates need to apply to join the course.
— All sessions will be held virtually — please make sure you can access Microsoft Teams or Zoom (these will be the preferred platforms for safeguarding training).
— Some session will require you to review a handout pack which will be sent to you in advance with instructions.
— Be aware that no online platform is completely secure, so keep questions general, and avoid giving any information that could be used to identify a child or family.
— Always keep your speaker on mute if you’re not speaking to reduce background noise.
— Please do not use any other devices while you’re taking part in the conference.
— Please take note of the allocated break and lunch times set during the training and behave as if you were in a ‘real’ training room.
Failure of any of the above will result in the delegate not receiving their certificate of accreditation.
