Working with the Principal Social Worker, the service supports our workforce, across Children and Families Service, to implement Blackpool Families Rock and our new ‘Working Well with Families across Lancashire’ principals. Based upon our learning from our strong ASYE Programme of Support, this new service will develop an Academy approach to support Children & Families Service workforce and a Social Work post graduate Continual Professional Development, in accordance with Social Work England’s Knowledge and Skills Statements (KSS). The service supports practitioners to implement learning from a range of quality assurance methods and celebrates and shares good practice examples via a range of methods. We work in partnership with our Human Resource colleagues, taking a lead in organising all recruitment processes, supporting staff who are absent from work in their return to work and work alongside individual staff and teams to support their practice development. We also reflect on learning from complaints using a restorative methodology and develop Policies and Procedures to clearly reflect new ways of working.
