Practitioner Engagement Events

I (Ciara) went to one of these last year and found it a really useful forum to share ideas, reflect on practice, and to help shape the future of social service delivery in Scotland. Please read on for details on events this year.The Scottish Government and Scottish Ministers are keen to maintain their engagement with front line social service workers by delivering more practitioner events in 2016.  These will enable Ministers, the Scottish Government’s Chief Social Work Adviser, Alan Baird and key policy teams in Scottish Government to engage directly with front line workers from across the diverse spectrum of social services.  We hope that the following events will be of interest.

To apply please use the links below.

 The Role of Social Services in Protecting Scotland’s Children – an important opportunity to find out about the Child Protection Improvement Programme announced by Scottish Ministers in February 2016.  An opportunity to discuss what works well in child protection and what could be improved. An event for those working with children and families but also with mental health, drugs and alcohol and adult services.

 Wednesday 18 May 2016, Carnegie Conference Centre, Dunfermline (10.00-15:00)

GIRFEC – how implementation of the Children and Young People (Scotland) 2014 Act will affect your way of working?

This event provides an important opportunity to find out more about the implementation of the GIRFEC duties in the Act which are due to commence on 31 August 2016.  Find out what wellbeing, the named person and the children’s plan means for you as someone working with children and young people.

Wednesday 8 June 2016, (10:00 -15:30) – Central Glasgow (venue to be confirmed)

Practical Arrangements

Please note that places might not be allocated on a “first come first served” basis as we are seeking to get a broad representation from across the public, voluntary and independent sectors.

Places will be confirmed well in advance.
