What to expect

You’ll walk away feeling motivated and equipped by the framework of the Code of Ethical Practice (the Code) and how it can be used to enhance your work with young people.

This interactive training session includes some introductory theory and guidance for using the Code in your practice. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and reflective practice as well as strategies for developing ethical practice in your role/organisation. 

We are running the sessions across 2 days: Friday 9 August and Friday 16 August, 1pm - 3pm. Both will be held online.
