Safeguarding Children e-academy & Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board announce EHA e-Learning module

Fri 2 Oct 2015

Voluntary Sector Providers working with Children, Young People and Families are encouraged to use the new Staffordshire Early Help Assessment Tool.

Over the past few months statutory partners have been working on a new tool to replace the old Common Assessment Framework.

The Early Help Assessment (EHA) which has been endorsed by the Staffordshire safeguarding Children’s Board (SSCB) allows practitioners to easily identify unmet needs in vulnerable children, young people and families. This will help ensure timely provision of additional services which will lead to improved outcomes.

Practitioners already working with children and families using the EHA have found it an effective tool with which to engage children and families in the assessment of their early help needs.

An e-learning training module ‘Delivering Early Help in Staffordshire’ is now available online to help practitioners understand when and how to use the new tool. The module is ideal for everyone who comes into contact with children, young people, their parents or carers through their work and is fully endorsed by all partner agencies through the SSCB.

To access the e-learning module please visit Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board via the link Delivering Early Help in Staffordshire e learning training

and follow the online prompts. The e-learning module is free of charge and takes 30 minutes to complete.

The Early Help Assessment form and supporting documents can be accessed via the following link: Partner Agencies: Staffordshire County Council
