This course is for people who support or advocate for children and young people who attend children’s hearings, or those who have been asked to attend a children’s hearing in their capacity as a support worker, keyworker, teacher, or other professional role.

Key learning:

How and why children are referred to a children’s hearing,

The key roles in the hearing

What legal orders a children’s hearing can make
