Bolton CVS, in partnership with Bolton Council, are offering all those working with children in Bolton, the opportunity to take part in a free, flexible eLearning programme designed to help meet the challenge of workforce development. The programme has been devised by KIDS, a national disabled children's charity, in order to improve the capacity and quality of the children's workforce and therefore reduce barriers for disabled children.
The programme has been funded by Bolton Council (Aiming High for Disabled Children) and contains a set of 41 modules that are designed for anyone who has contact with children and young people with a specific emphasis on raising awareness of the needs of disabled children. The programme covers a range of different requirements - from those who need a simple introduction to those working with disabled children and young people on a daily basis.
The modules topics include:
- Every Child Matters and the Law
- Safeguarding Children
- Understanding and Managing Risk
- Communicating with Children and Young People
- Theories of Child Development
- and so many more
