Code: PCC/21/180 Safer Recruitment

Organisations that provide services to children are required to incorporate into their recruitment and selection procedures measures that help deter, reject or identify people who might abuse children, or otherwise be unsuited to work with them. 

Making safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of children an integral part of human resources management in organisations that work with children is an essential part of creating safe environments.

Following the 2004 Bichard Inquiry Report there are legal duties on schools, FE colleges and a wide range of partner organisations to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

For schools, Bichard specifically recommended that:

  • Head teachers and school governors should receive training on how to ensure that interviews to appoint staff reflect the importance of safeguarding children
  • No interview panel to appoint staff working in schools and colleges should be convened without at least one member being properly trained

Code: PCC/21/371 Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) Awareness (EVENT FULL)

Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) is a permanent, lifelong disability caused by exposure to alcohol during pregnancy. The affected child often presents with a bewildering complexity of symptoms and behaviours many of which will only present at school age, when the alcohol in pregnancy has been forgotten or is considered irrelevant.


This workshop will raise awareness of the effects of parenatal exposure to alcohol and how we can best manage presenting behaviours for the best outcomes for the child. You will learn what FAS is and how to work with children and families effected by FAS.

Code: PCC/21/375 Family Group Conferences (FGC) Overview

Family Group Conference (FGC) offers all families that receive a pre-proceedings letter from their local authority an opportunity of a FGC meeting. Early independent evaluation found that this use of FGC increased by 15% the number of children safely staying within their family network and decreased by 21% the number of cases going forward in to proceedings.

During some of the most stressful periods of their lives, we have seen families come together in a Family Group Conference to make safe decisions for children at risk. The vast, majority took the opportunity and went on to make workable, safe and sustainable plans for their children

This 90 minute workshop will be led by Lis Gohrisch, Programme Manager for Daybreak Family Group Conferences.

Code: PCC/21/575 Intro to Leadership Skills

Leadership in the complex and fast changing modern workplace has become about unlocking the power and potential of people to achieve organisational goals. The old command and control, Taylorist management paradigm is no longer fit-for-purpose.

Anyone can become a leader by adapting their current specialist skill set and developing new skills and behaviours. This virtual workshop on Microsoft Teams explores leadership skills, on the assumption that leadership starts with self and identifying what it is that drives you and could inspire others to follow you.
