Well Done to Support Workers, Jair Emilio and Bernard Aziegbe, from Pegasus School who presented at the Bexley Social Workers Best Practice conference in September. Their presentation was about the work the school has done with a young person, how we evidenced the work we had done and the outcomes.
The conference was one of Bexley’s quarterly children’s social care conferences. Each conference has a focus and the focus of this one was looked after children. In particular they wanted staff to focus on building relationships with children, especially where there is a difficultly due to differing communication abilities or difficult behaviour .
The authorities Practice Development Officer commented how Jair and Bernards video and presentation showed staff how they can understand what a child’s day to day life is like, what makes them happy, even if they aren’t able to communicate that verbally.
The conference was attended by 150 social workers, social work assistants, students, personal advisors, managers, and senior managers, including the Director of Children’s Services.
