Direct Work with children and young people: Communication, Assessment and Therapeutic Skills

Bespoke Practitioners are pleased to offer this training to professionals working directly with children and young people. Organisations have a shared responsibility to Safeguard, which requires an ability to assess and support children who may be vulnerable. With thresholds for accessing support being harder to access, it is often schools and family support/pastoral staff and voluntary organisations that are ‘holding’ the needs of the child.

This course aims to deepen your understanding and application of a pastoral role and offer guidance and the ability to reflect by:

  1. Developing your pastoral skills, to better assess the needs of the child or young person (and family).
  2. Enhancing your communication skills when working with children and young people on an emotional and supportive level.
  3. Exploring direct work approaches that can be delivered in your school or family work setting – including therapeutic assessment/support skills.
  4. To provide you with theoretical knowledge and understanding of approaches that are practical and ready for application in your setting, giving you increased confidence when directly supporting a child.

Target Audience: SENCOs, Teachers and Pastoral Care Staff and Independent/Charitable Organisations, Family Support Workers.
