Chairing meetings with confidence

Price

£130.00

THEME

The responsibilities of a Chair can be considerable. Whereas some duties may be clearly outlined in related practice guidance along with the qualities that ensure effective chairing, not all Chair responsibilities are so helpfully detailed or provided.

This workshop will explore general planning for and facilitation of panels and complex meetings in the children’s sector.  It will explore time management and group facilitation whilst holding the child at the centre of thinking, recommendations and decision making.  It will enable Chairs of meetings to consider good practice and approaches to effectively managing the flow of information, summarising and the formation of key action plans. 

This workshop will provide an opportunity to consider the Chair’s role in enabling and fulfilling quality assurance functions as well as sharing common issues and dilemmas and best practice. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This workshop is designed for team managers, advanced practitioners, lead consultants, senior social workers chairing meetings and Chairs and Vice-Chairs of fostering and permanency panels, or those being considered for these roles. 

25 places available.
