Age Assessing Separated Children and Young People

Next course dates 17th July 2019, Leeds and 11th September 2019, London.

Conducting age assessments can be a daunting prospect for many practitioners. The outcome of these assessments have significant consequences for those involved and it is important to ensure that young people are protected and cared for appropriately throughout. A good quality and lawfully conducted assessment process can help to protect against children being assessed as adults and vice versa.

By completing this one-day course participants will have a practical understanding of:

  • The legislative and policy framework of Children’s Services and the Home Office
  • The current position of the courts in England and Wales
  • What constitutes a lawful age assessment process
  • Best practice – how to conduct assessments fairly and sensitively
