Key Working, Accountability and Report Writing (One day course)

All staff have a duty of care to their service users and their employers. This training identifies the different roles and how they link with report writing.

Why Report Writing? Most of us have to write reports to communicate information within and outside our organisations. And time is always an issue. However, a badly written report risks remaining unread and its objectives not being reached. Effective report writing is one of the best ways of influencing and persuading the right people and leaves a permanent record of research and thought processes.

The Key Working training will support candidates to develop and build upon their understanding of key working. The key working training will enable candidates to:

  Explore their understanding of working in partnership
  Explore the key working functions and how they might be applied
  Reflect on how the key working functions can provide effective support for service users, their families and practitioners

The training raises awareness of the importance of partnership working and key working functions.
