Event Details

 Focus 

The role of the Independent Panel Chair and Panel Adviser has become increasingly complex in the context of current legislation, regulations, guidance and case law. The Chair has particular responsibilities in ensuring a fair and transparent process for all those attending or represented at both Fostering and Adoption panels so that well evidenced, robust and child focussed recommendations are made to the Agency. Advisers have to oversee what can be a complex and challenging administrative process, whilst ensuring professional standards and legislative requirements are met. 

Chairs and Advisers need a variety of skills in order to analyse and identify key issues, to summarise complex information, always ensuring that panel members contribute effectively and sensitively to the consideration of cases presented. Chairs are also required to communicate effectively at all levels with professionals and lay persons whilst cooperating with, but remaining independent from the Agency panel team. 

This workshop will give Chairs, Vice Chairs and Panel Advisers the opportunity to review their role and discuss issues and dilemmas arising from their work. 

Target Group

 Panel Chairs, Vice Chairs and Panel Advisers in Fostering and Adoption Services, and Panel members or others considering taking on these roles.

Trainer   

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

 Learning Outcomes       

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

  • Name the current legislation, regulations, guidance and standards relating to the operation of panels;
  • Describe the skills, knowledge and value base required when chairing or advising panel meetings and managing panel business;
  • Identify strategies to deal with difficulties arising in panel meetings and throughout the panel process;
  • Apply critical reading methods and other frameworks to assist in the analysis of complex information, keeping the child in focus;
  • Identify how panel policies and procedures can maintain openness and transparency whenconsidering cases;
  • Review current quality assurance systems in their agencies using an audit tool.
