Domestic Abuse Level 2 (24 Aug 2021)
Time & Location
About the Event
Domestic Abuse Practitioner Standard for Northumbria
This is a Level 2 course and requires you to have completed the Level 1 DAPS course.
The aims and learning outcomes for this course are the same as the Level 2 face to face training offered prior to the Covid-19 pandemic – if you have previously attended that course, you do not need to attend this version.
The aim of the course is to enable participants to ‘Ask’ clients if they are experiencing domestic abuse and to take ‘Action’, so the harms caused by domestic abuse are reduced.
By the end of the course the learner will:
- Understand what domestic abuse is
- Recognise the indicators of domestic abuse
- Understand the purpose of targeted enquiry and employ good practice when undertaking targeted enquiry
- Respond to disclosures safely and effectively
- Understand the purpose of risk identification, employ good practice when undertaking risk identification and follow referral pathways
- Understand responsibilities around confidentiality and information sharing
This course takes the format of blended learning in three parts:
- Pre-course work (2 hours, self-guided learning)
- Live, interactive training session via Microsoft Teams or similar videoconferencing platform (3 hours, facilitator-led)
- Post-course reflection and evaluation (1 hour, self-guided)
The training consists of approximately 6 hours in total. All three elements must be completed to ‘pass’ the training and receive a CPD attendance certificate. The course leader will require evidence that the pre- and post-work has been completed before issuing a certificate, although the work will not be assessed formally.
Once booked you will receive an email with the pre-learning workbook and link to a film one week before you will receive joining instructions.
