Early Help Training Pack
Don’t Miss This Important Training Opportunity!
Statutory and Non-Statutory Organisation
On the 1st December 2016 Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB), launches its’ Early Help Training Pack which has been specifically designed to assist statutory and non-statutory organisations deliver Early Help training for their workforce.
All agencies have a responsibility to deliver Early Help in line with BSCB’s agreed Levels of Need as set out in ‘Right Services, Right Time’ (March 2015) and consistent with Birmingham’s Early Help Strategy agreed by BSCB and individual partners in April 2015.
The strategy identified the need for improved partnership arrangements and the Birmingham Early Help and Safeguarding Partnership, jointly chaired by Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Police, was established in September 2015. This has led to jointly agreed changes to systems, processes and to a stronger sense of shared purpose across agencies to meeting children’s needs.
The adoption of the ‘Signs of Safety and Wellbeing Practice Framework’ will further strengthen and simplify the assessment process in Birmingham, and a new Early Help assessment and Family Plan to replace our current Family Common Assessment Framework (fCAf).
The training pack has been designed to provide a thorough overview of Early Help, including practical advice and guidance on ‘what is Early Help’ and what to do if you have a concern about a child.
Included in the Training Pack are two separate evaluation tools to help organisations evaluate the impact of how effective the training has been. Organisations will be required to submit their Evaluation Report to BSCB by Friday 1st September 2017.
