Event Details


Focus 

Decision Makers in fostering and adoption agencies have a vital role in making life changing decisions for children and families. For many Decision Makers, there are few opportunities to prepare for the role, or to share practice dilemmas with others. This workshop will allow participants to share best practice and consider some issues associated with the role: 

  • How can you ensure your decisions are ‘Hofstetter’ compliant?
  • What processes are in place to convey decisions effectively and in a timely manner?
  • How can the ADM ensure that Panel processes are fair and transparent?
  • What is your role in relation to quality assurance of assessments and panel functions?

 Legislation, regulations and guidance are clear about the importance of the ADM role and the decision making process. Based also on the latest case law and research, this workshop will explore issues and dilemmas, providing participants with useful audits and templates to assist future decision making.

Target Group 

Current Agency Decision Makers or those anticipating taking on this role. This workshop is aimed at the PCF Strategic Social Work Manager level. 

Trainer   

Nicky Probert is a Training Manager for Family Action with over 30 years of social work experience. She is an experienced trainer, having worked for BAAF for over 12 years and currently chairs a fostering panel. 

Learning Outcomes       

By the end of the day participants will be able to:

  • Identify the implications of some of the most recent judgements related to agency decision making;
  • Describe the process of decision making in the context of legislation regulations and guidance;
  • Demonstrate ways to ensure that the basis of the decision making is sound, and decisions are communicated effectively;
  • Review their agency’s process in conducting appraisals of panel chairs;
