Integrated Working E-Learning Aims

In order to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, all agencies working with children and their families must be able to deliver the right help at the right time.

Anyone coming into contact with children has a role to play in:

  • Identifying concerns early
  • Sharing information
  • Taking prompt and informed action

This requires well established and well co-ordinated Integrated Working practices.

Integrated Working focuses on early intervention and prevention rather than just dealing with the consequences of difficulties in children’s lives. It is key to the improvement of their outcomes and fully supports The Children Act (2004) national vision for children and young people.

Integrated Working E-Learning Objectives

Integrated Working E-Learning is designed to help staff from different agencies work together to support vulnerable children. There are six key elements to Integrated Working:

  • Early Intervention: identifying and addressing needs at the earliest possible time and before a crisis.
  • Assessment: having a standard approach to assessment, normally the Common Assessment Framework (CAF).
  • Recording: ensuring information is kept in one place and is accessible to all who need it (with the consent of the child or parents).
  • Information Sharing: sharing information between practitioners from all relevant agencies.
  • The Team Around the Child (TAC): practitioners from relevant agencies making joint decisions about a child’s or families needs and how to meet these.
  • The Lead Professional: the practitioner who acts as the point of contact for children and their families and who co-ordinates and monitors the action plan.
