About the Training
Graded Care Profile 2 is an assessment tool that measures the quality of care being given to a child. The tool helps professionals identify signs of neglect and areas where a family may need additional help and support.
Highland will roll out the Graded Care Profile throughout 2018/19. In order to become licensed to use the tool, practitioners must attend this training.
The training is a one-day course that helps practitioners familiarise themselves with the GCP and have an opportunity to practice using the tool.
Practitioners must have attended core child protection training within the last 3 years (Assessment & Analysis/Understanding Child Protection Processes or equivalent).
Who should attend?
This training is for key professionals who have regular and direct contact with children and families.
These professionals include
• Practice Leads,
• Social Workers,
• Health Visitors,
• Head Teachers/Deputes/Guidance Staff,
• Children’s Service Workers/Community Children’s Workers
• Early Years Practitioners.
Although not an exclusive list, these groups will be given priority places. Awareness raising for other groups will be rolled out later in the year.
