Common Assessment Framework (CAF) Training

This is a one day session for those working across services for children and young people. We will consider the Common Assessment Framework in the context of early intervention and prevention, and provide practitioners with an understanding of the Cheshire East CAF procedures and how these will operate. Delegates will be able to undertake a Common Assessment and will be provided with their own copy of the Procedures following attendance at this multiagency training.
