Date:  Friday 2 March, 2018

Venue:  Edinburgh (to be confirmed)

Facilitator:  Ravinder Kaur

The role of the minute taker in adoption and fostering panels is a crucial one.  Adoption and fostering panels are underpinned by specific legal and regulatory requirements.

Getting to grips with legislation, case law and good practice in adoption and fostering

Date:  7 December, 2017

Venue:  Edinburgh (to be confirmed)

Facilitator:  Rhona Pollock

In the 8 years since the implementation of the Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007, policy, practice and court judgements have informed the interpretation and application of the law. The need has never been greater for an effective legal presence in the formulation and delivery of local authority planning for permanence. This workshop explores and explains in detail the requirements placed on the local authority solicitor; through the use of plenary sessions, case scenarios, group working and discussion, delegates will develop an enhanced understanding of how to achieve effective and timely progress towards permanence.  It will also promote the pivotal role of the local authority solicitor in achieving best outcomes for children and families.
