Shropshire Council

Training and events

We're developing training courses and workshops to complement the Early Help process, and we'll add details here as these progress. Training currently available is detailed below.

Early Help Liquid Logic Multi-Agency Training

Shropshire Council has been working hard over the last year to design a simpler, more effective case management system.  This Early Help Module (EHM) of Liquidlogic will link to both adults and children’s social care, who are already using Liquidlogic, with the aim of promoting a more sensible and joined up way of working.  We plan to begin the migration of our closed cases from our current system, ECINS in the New Year, and then will work with partners to implement a planned migration of live cases.

We will go live with the Early Help Module - Liquidlogic at the beginning of April 2020, and would like to invite our partners to understand how the system works and therefore to attend training

This training will include the basics of how to:

  • Log onto the system
  • Create a person and add their basic demographics
  • Find a person
  • Create a relationship
  • Create an involvement
  • Use the Flags
  • Create a case note
  • View a genogram
  • Use a form
  • Launch a standalone form
  • Navigate the pathway
  • Create an early help episode
  • Create an assessment
  • Create a plan
  • Attach a document
  • View the radar chart (webstar)
  • How to print
  • Use the link to log onto the e learning module which will be able to be completed on your own PC.

There will also be a bespoke on-line Me-Learning package of support for all those times that you may want to remind yourself of the above once the system has gone live and throughout the next 12 months and beyond.

In the meantime, don’t stop using ECINS – we all still need to know that our work is co-ordinated and that we continue to share information, for the benefit of supporting whole families.

Separate training sessions have been organised for Shropshire Council employees, Enhance/YSS practitioners and for our multi-agency Partners.

Early help audit meetings

Early Help stakeholder audits schedule 2020

Stakeholder audits help to quality assure our practice and to ensure that positive and effective outcomes for children, young people and their families in Shropshire are achieved. Through identifying areas of good practice and areas of development, sharing knowledge and tools with other professionals we can help facilitate positive change for children and families.

Within these meetings cases are being audited in pairs of professionals. This is a good opportunity to network with other professionals and share knowledge around good practice. Learning from these audits will recommend and facilitate improvement. One focus area is how services can work together more effectively to support families. The sessions also include an opportunity for feedback and reflection on the cases and the audit process.

Anyone working with children and families is welcome to attend, so please come and join us.

For further information, or to book on any of the above meetings, please email: stakeholderaudits@shropshire.gov.uk
