This module looks at the range of transitions, both planned and unplanned, experienced by children and young people in need of children’s services. Our aim is to equip you with current legislation and practice guidance, so you can support young people through transition to achieve stability. We will look at universal rights and focus on disabled children and young people and those who are looked after in residential or foster care.
By the end of the module, you should be able to:
1. Identify planned and unplanned transitions experienced by young people
2. Summarise current legislation and guidance on stability and transitions
3. Communicate effectively with young people about transitions
4. Support young people when an unplanned move has been decided.
This is the e-learning module, with on average five hours of e-learning activities, research and assessment. You can complete the programme in your own time and at your own pace. We encourage you to join and interact with the e-learning group through the course forum. This gives you an additional opportunity to engage with others to share ideas, experience and perspectives. It is a virtual space for discussion, learning and considering questions raised by the module. Many modules include an optional live webinar, video stream or podcast. We encourage you to engage with other learners to extend your learning and gain full advantage from the course, but it is not required for assessment. Your tutor will join in the course forum and provide feedback on your work as you submit assignments.
