The purpose of this course is to help you think about your reflexive practice in relation to the care of Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children (UASC) and separated or lone migrant young people. The capacity to reflect is part of your core professional competence and helps you think about your own practice, your approach to your work and to learn from the process. A key feature of this course is that it is evidence-informed, which means it is based on research findings from a project called Children Caring on the Move. Throughout the course you will be introduced to the thoughts and opinions of practitioners and professionals who work with UASC and young people who are themselves separated or unaccompanied migrant young people.
This course is aimed at social workers, senior practitioners, personal advisors and other professionals and practitioners working with UASC. If you are a social worker taking this course, you will be able to add it to your CPD record to meet the requirements for registration. If you are differently qualified, this course will enhance your reflexive practice skills.
