Child Development

To be able to effectively work with children, young people and families an understanding of child development is crucial.  This practical programme covers both key age and stage milestones and more importantly the impact of the these stages on positive outcomes for children and young people.  Practitioners will explore the key facts and theory around early brain development and consider neglect and complex needs on long term resilience and positive life chances.  The training produces confident, competent professionals who are able to assess and support families and individual children.

The course is suitable for those working with families in their own homes or community, through health, social care, housing or the voluntary sector or those working with individuals or groups of children in schools and children centres.
