AFRUCA to host course for practitioners working with Black/African families

Practitioners working with Black/African children and families in the UK are invited to a training course organised by Africans Unite Against Child Abuse (AFRUCA).

The full-day course will be held on 26th February 2014 from 9:30am to 4:30pm. The venue in London is yet to be announced.

It is open to Pupil Inclusion Managers, Mental Health Workers, Teachers, Social Workers, Family Support Workers, Youth Offending Teams, Education Welfare Officers and others.

The course is aimed at helping the practitioners develop a stronger working knowledge of clients from Black/African backgrounds for effective intervention, assessment and safeguarding.

Some of the topics to be examined include: key safeguarding needs of Black African children; issues affecting Black African children especially those from newly arrived communities; religion and culture and how they can affect practitioners’ work with Black African children, etc.

AFRUCA said the course has been independently certified as conforming to Continuous Professional Development (CPD) standards.
