A One Day Course 

‘Getting to Grips’ is a one day course, which develops the themes of our highly successful ‘Bigger Picture’ half day workshops we delivered across Wales in December and January, through funding from the Welsh Government.   The course will support people from a wide range of organisations to understand the distinctive Welsh legislative and policy framework for children and families, that has developed as a result of increasing devolution from Westminster.

The training will consider current Welsh legislation around children and families, Welsh Government policy and strategies on issues including how children’s rights are being addressed through  initiatives on child poverty, health, social care and education. The course will explore Welsh government programmes including Families First, Flying Start, Communities First and Integrated Family Support considering the roles and priorities of different sectors involved in delivering these, and the challenges faced by everyone.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will:

  • Gain an overview of the political context and processes that shape policy in Wales
  • Learn about Welsh Government policies and strategies relevant to children and young people
  • Understand the national priorities for children and family services
  • Explore how your organisation and key areas of work fit with the main policy areas concerning children, young people and families.

Who should attend?

Practitioners, manager and policy makers from all sectors and all organisations, keen to explore how their area of work fits in with the bigger picture of child and family policy in Wales. It will help organisations to prepare for predicted changes and to operate effectively within a multi-agency context.
