Working with or Caring for Unaccompanied Children and Young people

Training course for teachers, residential workers, housing workers, social workers and anyone working in this field.

Under international law, the UK has a duty to offer asylum to people who flee their own countries because of a well founded fear of persecution. Children in these families are usually very vulnerable and have experienced the most traumatic of times in their home countries.

Caring and working with  these children and young people can be challenging, not only in terms of cultural differences, but working with a young persons isolation and trauma, which at times can be exasperated by the immigration structures and processes.

This course covers some of the main issues facing the young people and their carers, who are living in the UK today.

This 1 day course meets the requirements of the Care Certificate Standards and National Minimum Standards for all those working and caring for children.
