Family Court: A survival Guide for Professionals

  • Hollyfields Centre Woodacre Road Birmingham, England, B24 0JT United Kingdom (map)

We are excited to bring you this brand new course for 2018! 

Suitable for:  All school staff who may be involved in the family courts, supporting children and families through court process.

Any court process is complicated.  Family Court has specific rules and regulations designed to ensure the multi agency process integrates and ‘dovetails’ timelines, legal boundaries, departmental processes and safeguarding responsibilities for all affected parties.    Keeping your focus on supporting pupils and/or parents in these circumstances, while ensuring you adhere to the rules can be daunting. 

The Court Process for children, parent(s) and school can seem complicated and time-consuming.    This course offers the opportunity to see how it all fits together and what responsibilities and lines of communication the school has at its disposal to help them through the process. 

Course Content:

  • The Child Protection Process: Overview

  • The Family Courts and Care Proceedings

  • Attending Court as a Witness: Care Proceedings & Attendance Hearings

  • Being a Credible Witness
