Code: BFS/21/123 Signs of Safety Multi-Agency Briefing Workshop

Signs of Safety is an innovative, strength-based approach to facilitating family change across the continuum of need from early help to high risk child protection. It provides a methodology to map concerns, engage families in a plan and deliver interventions where children will notice the changes in their lives. SoS uses ideas from systemic family therapy to motivate parents and galvanise both multi-agency professionals and the family’s own network to finding creative solutions to issues of need and risk.

Signs of Safety is a key methodology in Barnet’s Resilience Based Practice model and used alongside systemic and other ideas in our social work case work practice. It works best when these ideas and practices are shared within the multi- agency partnership.

Who should attend:
This event is for anyone in the multi-agency children’s workforce with responsibilities around safeguarding. This will include DSLs, Health Visitors and those in the partner agencies / voluntary sector who want or develop their skills in safeguarding. (NB Social workers should attend the 2 day practitioner course.)

Code: BFS/21/89 Solution Focused Practice Level 2 (BICS Team only) (EVENT FULL)

Solution Focused Practice refers to a conversational process for generating positive change. It can be used as therapy, coaching, team building, in fact, in any situation where improvement is being sought. The BRIEF Certificate course will focus primarily on therapy and coaching but will be flexible enough to stretch to other arenas in order to meet course members individual needs.

Solution Focused Practice can be summarised as four questions each of which is the starting point for a series of supplementary questions which, put together, make a Solution Focused conversation.

1. What are your best hopes from our talking?
This part of the conversation is intended to clarify the client’s desired outcome and until this is agreed no further questions are possible.


2. Imagine that you wake up tomorrow and all your hopes from our talking have been realised what will be different in your life?
This part of the conversation seeks to draw out as detailed a description as possible of the client’s life if the desired outcome is achieved.

3.Let’s have a 0 – 10 scale where 10 = your desired outcome has been achieved and 0 = the opposite where would you say you are now?
This question begins that part of the conversation aimed at discovering what the client is already doing or has done in the past that might prove helpful in achieving the hoped-for future.

4.What’s better?
This is the question we ask at the beginning of second and subsequent sessions. It seeks to discover and build on anything the client has done which might be seen as part of the desired future.

Code: BFS/21/46 Training, Support and Development Standards workshop for foster carers: Standard 5

Foster carers play an extremely important role, providing much needed support and security for often very vulnerable children, and enabling their successful transition into independent adult life. Fostering is a challenging role and requires skills and dedication.

The Training, Support and Development (TSD) standards form part of a foster carer's induction in the role. They provide a national minimum benchmark that sets out what foster carers should know, understand and be able to do within the first 12-18 months after being approved

These standards were developed by the sector and were introduced in 2007 and apply to all approved foster carers in England.

The TSD Standards provide a national minimum benchmark to set out what all foster carers should know, understand and be able to do within the first 12 months of approval. They form part of a national strategy, supported by the Department for Education, to
raise the profile of foster carers as valued professionals and to improve and
standardise service provision for looked after children.

All foster care providers are expected to engage with their foster carers to support them in achieving the TSD Standards. This ensures that the Standards are delivered in a way which allows carers to understand how the standards support them in their caring role, encouraging them to build on any areas for development identified in their assessment.

It is the government’s view that all foster carers who are approved under the Fostering Services Regulations should complete the TSD Standards, which are designed to equip all foster carers with the skills and knowledge to provide high quality care to the children they look after. The TSD Standards are also now a requirement of the National Minimum Standards (Fostering).

Completion of the TSD Standards is a requirement for all approved foster carers in England and is referenced within the National Minimum Standards for Fostering Services 2011.
