Formal advocacy - advocating for children and young people as part of a wider role
- Friday, 23 March 2012
The Welsh Government’s Guidance to the Model for Delivering Advocacy Services for Children and Young People in Wales 2011 identifies a range of professionals who work with children and young people who are able to advocate on their behalf. These professionals include Youth Workers, Teachers, School Nurses, Play Workers and Care Workers, etc.
Tros Gynnal Plant has designed and developed a unique course specifically for Formal Advocates, taking into account other professional commitments that inevitably come with a wider role. The course offers 7 credits at level 3, blending elements of face-to-face learning, distance learning, tutorial sessions and self study to allow for a flexible approach to learning and evidencing.
Tros Gynnal Plant hopes to offer open courses in late Spring 2012, and would welcome enquiries relating to bespoke delivery of this new course.
The course will cover:
• Responding to requests for advocacy support
• Providing advocacy support
• Assisting children and young people to explore choices
• Understanding Children’s Rights Legislation
• Engaging with other professionals as a Formal Advocate
• Using systems to keep children and young people safe
