Working Alongside Families: Experts by Experience -Somerset

By nwg at South West

This training course has been developed using the voices and experiences of affected families, to aid the evolution of the workforce in supporting families who are experts by experience of child sexual exploitation (CSE).The course has been produced with the support of members of affected families who want to assist practitioners in considering and reflecting on their own, and organisational practices. They share their experiences of services, the court process, the impact of CSE on them as parents as well as on their child and wider family. Delegates will be encouraged to consider different models of practice and how we work alongside families.

Training will compliment the NWG Parental Support Benchmarking Tool which has been designed to support agencies to examine their current offer to parents affected by child sexual exploitation and to think about the next steps to improve engagement with parents as a safeguarding partner.

Feedback from previouse Working Alongside Families training:

“Excellent, extremely useful training for anyone working with families”

“Brilliantly led training”

“Interesting and emotive, reflective and well informed training”

“I found the training to be eye opening – although it shouldn’t be! It makes perfect sense to make families partners in the fight against CSE. I think some of the best information comes from the people closest to victims of CSE and it makes sense on every level to be working with families and keeping them included at every step of the way. The training was professionally delivered with a human focus. I would recommend it to any agencies working on the battle against CSE.”

Combatting Child Sexual Exploitation in Sport – Derby – postponed until 02.05.19

By nwg at East Midlands

  • This course is CPD accredited

This NWG CPD accredited course has been developed in collaboration with Edge Hill University’s Dr Mike Hartill to provide a greater comprehension around the issue of sexual abuse and exploitation within sport. The course provides attendees with the historical context and prevalence of child sexual exploitation in sport within the UK and beyond. The course looks towards developments in policy that have been put into place to safeguard children in sporting environments and how these may impact on our practice as individuals and as organisations. During the training day learning is enriched through the use of the voices of survivors of CSE in Sport.

The training is delivered by NWG’s Safeguarding in Sport Lead, Kevin Murphy who has a sound understanding of how young people need to be protected when engaging in community activities and has been involved in the International VOICE’s for Truth and Dignity project. This project involves 7 countries researching the experiences of those abused through sport and bringing that knowledge and those voices into his role.

This course is aimed at anyone working within sport who wants to broaden their understanding of abuse in sport along with multi-agency practitioners who work alongside children, young people and their families who wish to extend their understanding and practice in the field of sport.

Safeguarding Your Workplace

By other at West Midlands

OVERVIEW

This is a saying often used when discussing extremism and radicalisation, but there is lots of uncertainty around what to look out for, what may be a concern and when to act. With the current UK terror threat level running at SEVERE, raising awareness of and building confidence around these issues is crucial.

WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE NEW CONTEST STRATEGY?
The Prevent Duty (2015) places a responsibility on all schools and registered early years providers to have `due regard’ to preventing people being drawn into terrorism, But what needs to happen to remain compliant? How can you do this effectively and still manage your workload?

 

HOW CAN WE DO THIS EFFECTIVELY AND STREAMLINE YOUR WORKLOAD?
The Care Quality Commission (CQC), whilst not specially inspecting around the Prevent agenda, still need to be reassured that safeguarding is of paramount importance to both commissioners and service providers. An individual at risk of radicalisation is not being adequately safeguarded.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO BECOME COMPLIANT?
This one day conference will explore issues around extremism, radicalisation and Prevent, from a safeguarding perspective. The conference will be a fantastic continuing professional development and networking opportunity for all those working with children and young people in early years, education, residential care, alternative provision, the criminal justice system, apprenticeships, sports clubs, youth groups etc.

This event is designed for a range of staff in educational establishments: • Designated Safeguarding Leads • Prevent Leads • School Governors, PRUs • Police Community Support Officers working as School Liaison Officers • Organisations working in the PREVENT/Safeguarding arena •CAMHS teams •Educational Psychologists Children’s homes and sheltered accommodation.

Understanding Trauma – Derby

By nwg at East Midlands

This training is CPD Accredited

The aim of this course is for practitioners to gain a more in depth understanding of trauma and the impact it has on the lives of children and young people. The course will take delegates through a journey on how the brain develops during childhood and the importance of understanding this process for our working practice. There will be a focus on how trauma manifests and the ways in which we cope with trauma. In gaining a more in depth understanding of trauma and the impact it has on the lives of children and young people, practitioners will better equipped to offer effective support.

This course is aimed at multi agency practitioners from a variety sectors and roles who are involved in supporting children, young people and their families in the field of child sexual abuse and exploitation.

The course facilitator will be the NWG Trainer, Sarah Brown.

Since gaining a degree in Youth Studies from Nottingham Trent University Sarah has worked within a variety of backgrounds supporting vulnerable young people and their families, including the role of a Pastoral Manager in a secondary school and as a Family Resource Worker.

After volunteering as a counsellor for several years at ChildLine, Sarah was employed as a supervisor.

It was at ChildLine she developed her child centred, trauma informed approach to working alongside young people. She worked to increase the skills, knowledge and empathy of volunteers in areas such as bullying, abuse, neglect, domestic violence, self-harm and suicide to ensure young people received the best possible support available. Sarah’s time at Childline also involved managing and assessing both safeguarding issues and immediate life threatening situations presented by young people within the counselling room.

Sarah is passionate about the way in which we support young people and the need for services and practitioners to recognise and understand how trauma impacts on young people and how we can offer more effective support based on an increased level of understanding.
