Summary report on the proposal to develop a training network in the North of Scotland. Such a network would facilitate joint working and provide mutual support on training and development issues. Consultation undertaken on behalf of the Scottish Social Services Learning Network North by Carol Smith.

This training activity consists of 20 case scenarios and staff are asked to identify whether or not each scenario constitutes abuse of neglect. They are also asked to consider the needs of children at each developmental stage. These exercises can be done individually initially but require group discussion to explore issues effectively.

This resource is the website for the National Centre for Work Based Learning Partnerships. Work Based Learning is a modern way of creating university-level learning in the workplace. Its special work-linked features enable learning to take place at, through - and be centred on - the working environment.

This short training scenario was originally used in the context of introductory child protection training. It gives brief information from which participants are asked to identify what they are concerned about and what they would do next. A school is concerned about the behaviour of a disabled child who receives monthly respite care.

This course is a mixture of didactic input and case scenario exercises. It also includes a PowerPoint presentation called 'A Multi Agency Understanding of Child Protection Related to Disability'. The course offers information on the current state of knowledge about the abuse of disabled children and the challenges of their adequate protection. There is then an opportunity for participants to make use of this knowledge using some brief case scenarios. Exercise can last approximately 2.5 hours and is appropriate for groups of 8-25.

Health Boards and Local Authorities recognise that to improve the joint working performance of the professionals within the services, there is a requirement to develop structures to support joint working including joint funding of services, joint management and joint training. This tool intends to focus on the joint training arrangements and to augment the joint training activities, by developing opportunities for a shared learning within integrated services.

This Communication Strategy sets out the key strategic objectives of the North Ayrshire Child Protection Committee and how they can be implemented.

In April 2010 the Learning and Skills Council in England will be abolished and responsibility for planning and commissioning education and training for 16–18 year olds will move to local authorities. This report looks at local authorities’ early experiences of the transfer to help inform planning, especially with regard to work- force capacity.
