Continuing Professional Development

AILC has always placed Continuing Professional Development high in its overall workstream priorities. The Annual Conference has always been a key event for the Association providing informative sessions and workshops with space to network and gain mutual support. Following a survey in 2015, to identify learning and development needs for LSCB Chairs, AILC developed a CPD programme to widen the offering to its Members.  In partnership with Research in Practice, AILC developed a set of Webinars and an Induction Toolkit for new Chairs .  The purpose of the Toolkit was to provide, in one place, some essential information for Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) Chairs about the core areas of their role and where they might find practice exemplars. (Much of the resources included are then provided within AILCs website).   The CPD offering widened in 2015 to include LSCB Business Managers (in tandem with our Parternship Support offering) and Business Managers attended one day of the Annual Conference that year.  Feedback informed the decision to extend this further to the full two days at this year's Annual Conference.
