Event description

Description

The challenges and complexities facing professionals in safeguarding and protecting the children in their care have increased markedly in recent years. The rapid take up of new technologies among the young have meant that organisations have had to increase their awareness and understanding quickly against a backdrop of new threats and risks faced by children and young people. This course will provide foundations for sensible, ethical and balanced guidance to foster carers, social workers and other childcare professionals on how to navigate these pressures.

During the training participants will

  • Explore the internet and new technologies in order to learn what children and young people are doing now
  • Learn about the latest research into the impact on children and child development
  • Clarify the key principles of effective education and support in these areas– how to influence children and young people to make good choices
  • Devise policies, procedures and strategies to deal with internet and mobile phone use in the foster home
  • Take a closer look at particular apps popular among children and young people
  • Evaluate different approaches to child protection, safer caring, risk and resilience
