A free breakfast seminar will be held at the University of Wolverhampton for people who provide support to children and young people.
The event is part of the University’s services and activities to support Every Child Matters (ECM) which aims to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and their families.
The breakfast meeting on Wednesday, January 23, at Boundary House, Walsall Campus, is aimed at middle and senior managers of public, private and voluntary sectors who are working within Integrated Children’s Services, such as councils, youth work, charities, children’s centre, schools, health and social care.
Christine Vincent, ECM Lead at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “This is the first of our series of breakfast seminars to bring together middle and senior managers to reflect on their current ECM practice and work with colleagues across the region.”
The University of Wolverhampton has developed a portfolio of services which respond to the need for integrated working practices and staff at a range of levels to support children, young people and their families.
The seminar will help people to develop using ‘Action Learning Set principles’, which involve meeting with others in order to explore solutions to real problems and deciding on the action to take. The seminar series will be supported by an online forum between seminars.
Anyone who would like to attend the seminar, which will take place from 8.30am to 12.30pm on Wednesday January 23, should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by Wednesday 16 January to book a place.
