  • For The Record – effective case notes for child and youth work
    All day
    09-02-2017

    Recording – particularly making case notes – is essential to effective child and youth work but can be difficult to do well. This highly interactive workshop examines the science and the art of recording in various contexts, with a focus on case notes. Learn how to write well-structured documents which achieve their purpose as tools to help protect and support children and young people. Participants will learn to apply the ‘rules’ for succinct but effective recording, including efficient and useful case notes, assessment notes and action plans, and well-supported practice decisions.

  • Connect Up Breakfast – Let’s talk about ‘data’
    08:00 -09:30
    21-02-2017

    Our ‘Connect Up’ breakfasts are an opportunity to come together to explore topics of interest, to listen, share ideas and engage in meaningful conversation.

    Let’s talk about ‘data’

    ‘We need data – but what do we need?’

    People we talk to tell us they need data, analysis, research and understanding – but it can be hard to articulate what that really means.  In this session we will explore our data priorities across the sector by discussing the questions that need to be answered, the problems that need to be solved and the outcomes that need to be monitored.

    Facilitated by Emma Robinson
