I would be eternally grateful if you could help me with standard 6
Question 6.1a
Look at and then summarise a piece of legislation or guidance that relates to protecting and safe guarding children

I just don't know where to start with this standard....the previous ones have not been too bad
Thanks in advance x

SORRY !! spelt wrong , got me my NVQ in just 3 months. Have too do the work though or may be our 38 years of fostering helped a little, Yes newbies us oldies still have too do training we are obliged too complete 3 courses a year plus support group meetings each month rather more like short courses, important you progress with social changes over the years. Bet social worker's do not get better training ???

hi all,
I know some of you are struggling with your cdwc books and I would like to offer some help. while I might not be able to give you answers (that would be cheating) I can re-word the questions for you and nudge you in the right direction.
my LA re-worded and re-printed the workbook so it is in plain English and therefore extremely easy to do. most of it is just reflecting on work you have done with current or previous placements.
let me know if you would like some help either on this thread or to my inbox
