The Board are pleased to launch the roll out of training for the NSPCC Graded Care Profile 2 (GCP2) toolkit. The training will initially be for the twenty nominated train the trainers and will commence in February 2021.
Graded Care Profile 2 is an evidence based assessment tool to support children and families who are experiencing neglect which will be rolled out through 2021 to practitioners once training has commenced.
The Board will also be holding a series of awareness sessions for managers, team leaders and front line staff and further multi agency intense training later in the year to children’s workforce which will consist of a full days training in using the toolkit to assess the impact of neglect and the parents ability to improve outcomes for children.
GCP2 can be used by all agencies alongside other tools such as Outcome Stars and can help practitioners improve their knowledge around recognising and supporting cases of neglect.
There are plans in place to launch GCP2 at a Board conference in April, more details to follow.
