Changes to CPD courses for 2013
NEW! Shorter courses
We appreciate that time away from caseloads can be a real concern. With this in mind, we have reviewed our CPD courses and reduced the number of training days from 4 to 3 for both Domestic abuse: helping parents reduce the harm to their children (formerly Safeguarding Children living with domestic abuse) and Domestic abuse and substance use.
NEW! Cost reduction
Having reduced the number of days means we have been able to cut £100 off the cost of the 3 day courses.
OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS
A three-day course developed in partnership with Action on Addiction, a leading national charity working to tackle addiction. The training has been specifically developed for IDVAs and frontline professionals who provide support to domestic abuse victims with substance use issues.
Domestic abuse victims who have young children suffer the most severe abuse and their children are at risk of physical and psychological harm. This course enables professionals working with victims to improve their response to children's safeguarding issues through support of the non-abusing parent. This three-day course was previously entitled 'Safeguarding children living with domestic abuse'.
Evidence gained through our Insights service suggests that IDVAs and domestic abuse practitioners feel less confident in dealing with sexual violence than other problems associated with domestic abuse. This four-day course will equip you with essential skills and knowledge to improve your professional response and make victims of sexual violence safer.
We currently offer three CPD courses, however we are looking to broaden the range of subjects covered in 2013. Sign up to enews if you would like to hear about these when they are announced. Or you would like to make a suggestion you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
