Development of a CPD programme on permanence for child and family social workers

Mott MacDonald and our consortium of partners have been appointed by the Department for Education to Design and Develop a CPD programme on permanence.

The work will be undertaken between February 2017 and August 2017. We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this work and excited to be working with such strong partners. The partnership organisations are:

• Adoption UK


• Family Rights Group

• Fostering Network

• FutureLearn

• In–Trac Training and Consultancy

• Mott MacDonald

• North Yorkshire County Council

• Strathclyde University

• University of York

The CPD programme will be part of the wider social work reform agenda and will focus on supporting social workers to have the skills and knowledge to:

  • Choose the right permanence option for each child, based on a thorough knowledge of each option and the impact of delay on a child’s life chances
  • Identify wider services and support, set out in a care plan, and delivered to help children recover from previous experiences to achieve stability
  • Navigate the legal processes with skill (including the ability to perform well in the court arena)
  • Identify a suitable carer/arrangement (being mindful of unconscious bias) and treated with respect
  • Support families in transition and beyond (including through disruption or breakdown)
