Description

Physical and Learning Disabilities: live training for Foster Carers & Social Workers

This course outlines two key models of disability – The ‘Traditional Medical’ Model and the ‘Social’ Model –  and highlights how the experiences of disabled people are affected by which model the non-disabled world adopts. There has been much debate about these models over the past 30 years or so, which is not represented here. This course offers a brief and simple overview to prompt discussion and reflection, and to encourage further exploration of the impact of models of disability.

This course is for Foster Carers and Adopters as well as their Supervising Social Workers. It is also suitable for Residential Child Care Workers (RCCW) and residential team managers from mainstream, short-breaks and outreach services.

Advanced Training

This option is aimed at an audience with prior knowledge of the subject and isn’t suitable for.  Those that are new to the subject would be better with our standard course.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
