Care and Risk Management (CARM) Train the Trainer: March 2022

CYCJ is offering a three-day training course to support the implementation of Care and Risk Management (CARM), funded by the Scottish Government. This will enable and support practitioners to deliver CARM training for their own local authorities and partner agencies.

This free training is available on the following dates – participants must be able to attend all three days:

Session 1: March 7-9 (inclusive)

Session 2: March 21-23 (inclusive)

As this training aims to assist practitioners to deliver CARM training locally, it is intended for individuals who have knowledge and experience of risk practice, particular experience of risk practice with children and an understanding of the importance of a developmental and systemic approach. In addition, an understanding of using and applying structured professional judgement (SPJ), risk assessment tools, risk analysis and formulation would be beneficial for supporting learning.

The training programme will focus on supporting attendees to be able to deliver training on the requirements and associated risk practice for practitioners (two days) and for chairs (one day). It will use discussion, case study and exercises to support learning and highlight key learning points for attendees to emphasise when they deliver the training.

If you would like to attend this training, please complete the form and return it to by February 7. This must include your line manager’s authorisation, as there will be an expectation that you deliver this training within your own local authority to support the implementation of risk practice with children where aspects of their behaviour pose risk of harm/serious harm.
