The East of England Strategic Migration Partnership are pleased to offer an online training course on Human Rights Assessments to local authority social workers in the East of England region.
This training will give delegates the information they need to ensure their assessments are legally compliant, as well as the practical tools and skills required to undertake the assessment in a child centered way.
This online course is aimed at social workers, personal advisors, team managers and local authority legal teams who are case holding former relevant unaccompanied asylum seeking children (UASC).
The course is delivered in modules which are hosted on a secure online learning platform with a 1:1 coaching call at the end of the course.
Once registered to attend, the learner and the tutor will agree a timescale to complete the course (normally over a period of two weeks) and book in a mutually convenient time for the 1:1 coaching call for that date.
The learner will have access to a secure online learning platform where the course is broken down into modules, designed to be taken at the learners own pace. All modules contain a PowerPoint presentation with audio recording as well as additional resources that learners can download and use in their daily practice. Some modules require the learner to complete an activity which can then be uploaded onto the learning platform or discussed during the 1:1 coaching call.
Once the modules are completed, the learner will complete their training with the 1:1 coaching call where they can ask any questions, discuss their learning and ensure that they feel confident going forward.
