Safeguarding and Keeping Children Safe in Turbulent Times

Leadership Academy 2: Safeguarding and Keeping Children Safe in Turbulent Times, 11th February 2016

This second thematic seminar of the 2016 programme explored the changing context for children’s social work within which a shrinking resource base is accompanied by a new government vision and new accreditation arrangements for social workers. It drew upon innovative and contrasting examples from 2 LAs with very different contexts, where establishing a shared set of values and sense of moral purpose across and beyond the organisation had provided a solid foundation from which to secure real improvement. The seminar also provided an opportunity to share learning from recent OfSTED inspections and examine how the sector might develop further its approach to improvement through peer support and challenge.
