Training Update: New Legal Courses for Children's Social Workers

“As a social worker with no court experience it provided full insight into what I can expect at court, from what to wear to how to address the Judge. Even going through the history and background of law helped refresh my knowledge and understanding of the differences between court at different levels. Highly recommended for social workers without any previous experience. Above all that, it has reduced my fear of court and provided sound advice on writing statements
