We are delighted to announce that we are launching a new course in permanence planning in kinship care. The 'Relative Matters' course will run from June-December 2019. 

This unique course is aimed at social workers and managers in children and families’ teams, family placement teams as well as other specialist settings across the statutory, voluntary and independent sector. Applicants will require the support of their employer to attend as well as validate their work. It is imperative that sponsoring agencies ensure their nominated students have the motivation, capacity and commitment to complete the course.

The course will be delivered alongside the validation process from Strathclyde University at MSc Level 11 and once validated will attract an award of 60 credits (postgraduate certificate) which can be taken forward to further study. Agencies will need to be confident that their nominated student can study at master’s level.

We are expecting a high number of applications for this course and a waiting list may have to come into operation. If you are aware of interest in the course within your agency please contact us as soon as possible.
