Care L&D

About this course

Most children and young people get all the help and support they need from their parent(s), wider family, and community but sometimes, perhaps unexpectedly, they may need a bit of extra help.

Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) is the national approach which enables families to work in partnership with people who can support them, such as teachers, doctors, and nurses. Therefore, this course is relevant for every service that impacts on children, including staff in adult services who are working with parents and carers. It covers a wide range of topics, and its primary aim is to provide the workforce with the skills and knowledge they need to help children and young people to grow up feeling loved, safe, and respected so that they can realise their full potential.
