We are delighted that MP Tim Loughton has endorsed our new Level 4 training 'Working with vulnerable children, individuals and families' programme. He has also written a foreword for the comprehensive learner recourse explaining to learners how valuable their role is in transforming the lives of vulnerable families.
Tim is passionate about intervening early to make sure that we get it right for children and families, and very supportive that we have made this important step to bringing about change for vulnerable children, individuals and families.
‘Interface have a genuine mission to improve outcomes for children and families and I am delighted that they have worked hard to create a course that accurately meets the needs of the workforce both early intervention and with complex families’ said Tim Loughton MP.
Tim is well versed with the growing groundswell of evidence that shows that intervening early is the right thing. During his appointment as the Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Children and Families following the 2010 General Election he led on several areas of successful reform in child protection, child sexual exploitation and adoption.
We have worked hard at Interface to create this new qualification as a result of changing workforce needs. While we have trained over 6,500 staff and managers over the last few years we have seen that staff are working with a broader range of children and families as a result of the Early Help agenda. They are expected to work with all family members to achieve sustainable outcomes through multi-agency working. We know that this means that some need new skills. Others want to understand how to adapt current skills to the new context and clients. Importantly all are keen to understand how their role fits with strategy, other partners and local outcome plans.
Its bang up to date and the first Level 4 qualification for the field in 5 years! There are three modules of this programme:
There are many reasons why this will become THE qualification for those working with vulnerable children, individuals and families.
