This session is primarily for Newly Qualified Social Workers, as an opportunity to support their confidence to practice post-qualifying. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from practice examples and experiences of an expert Practitioner on how to prepare for a home visit, how to engage with children and their families and how to reflect on what was observed during the visit.



By the end of the course, delegates will learn how to:

  • Discuss how best to engage with children and families;
  • Think about how to ensure children’s voices are heard during visits;
  • Reflect on the key objectives of home visits;
