Venue:

Consort House, 5-7 Queensway Redhill Surrey RH1 1YB

Detail:

Pre-requisite

Participants must have:

  • Completed Foundation Modules 1 and 2

Target Group: The course is aimed at practitioners and managers in voluntary, independent and statutory agencies who work predominantly with children, young people and/or their parents/carers and who could contribute to assessing, planning, intervening and evaluating the needs of a child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns.

Course Aim: To increase confidence of practitioners in engaging ‘fathers’ and significant males in children’s safeguarding work; and raise and reinforce awareness of the importance of engaging ‘fathers’ to secure better outcomes for children. ‘Fathers’ = “Biological or other father-figures” (Daniel & Taylor 2001)

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the course participants will have:

  • An enhanced understanding/knowledge of the issues for both professionals and fathers in children’s safeguarding work
  • A firmer grasp of the research/theory base on the benefits (or otherwise) for children of being ‘father-inclusive’
  • An idea of the ways services and organisations could be adapted to secure better professional practice in this area
  • Increased awareness of the skills, qualities, support and ‘tools’ professionals need to develop to work successfully with fathers
  • A reminder that best practice has a statutory base - recent case law involving ‘parental responsibility’ and ‘engaging men’ fairly in safeguarding and other processes.
