Unaccompanied asylum seeking children and young people


This open course will provide tools to improve practice in assessing and planning for separated and unaccompanied children and young people and concentrates on developing practice around the statutory assessment and planning processes, including core assessment, needs assessment, pathway planning and care planning for looked after children and young people.


On open courses we can accommodate a maximum of four delegates from one organisation only. For a larger group booking, please see the information on commissioned training.



This course is for foster carers, adopters, social workers and anyone working with children who have travelled to this country from abroad and who do not/ or who have not had a responsible appropriate adult caring for them.



The course will cover:

  • the reasons and factors that contribute to children becoming unaccompanied and to migrate
  • clarify roles and responsibilities in the care and protection of unaccompanied migrant children (UMC)
  • an overview of relevant legal processes and their impact on children’s wellbeing, including the asylum and child protection processes
  • child trafficking and modern slavery
  • the impact of trauma, separation and loss on UASC and tools to help to manage this trauma
