 Working with Families where there is Domestic Abuse is challenging for all involved, particularly when there are children to consider. Practitioners working at all levels require the skills and knowledge to engage , assess risk and protective factors, make realistic plans and work with the family towards significant change. This course will help in developing such skills and knowledge.

Applicants must have attended the TSCB Domestic Awareness course prior to coming on  the Whole family approach. This curse will enable Practitioners to work with families at all levels of need from early help to Child Protection; there is an emphasis on working safely and recognising which families are amenable to change.

Target Groups : All who work directly with children and their families, including adult focused workers who work with parents, grandparents, carers.

TSCB minimum standards for basic single agency safeguarding children awareness raising training are designed to assure that relevant training across all agencies and services in Tameside is delivered to a consistently high standard. They will be utilised by the Learning Improvement and Activity Sub- Group to quality assure relevant training. It should be noted that basic single agency awareness training should not be utilised to negate the requirement for professionals or volunteers in Tameside, whose work brings them into with children and their families, from acquiring or refreshing their Multi-Agency safeguarding knowledge via TSCB’s Multi-Agency Training Offer.
