Course description 

The Graded Care Profile 2 (GCP2) is an NSPCC strengths based assessment tool that uses a graded scale to measure the levels of care being provided for a child where neglect is an issue. It as an evidenced based tool that can help families understand their child’s needs and create conversations that can lead to positive change and progress.

Neglect is a priority area of work for  Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership with this type of harm being the largest reason why children are receiving statutory support and on child protection plans in the city. We know assessing and measuring neglect can be really difficult, it can be complex, intergenerational, open to professional de-sensitisation, subjective and prone to bias. GCP2 will help create a shared language relating to neglect and improve confidence in decision making from early help to child protection.

Who is this course for?

The GCP2 can be used by anyone supporting families across the early help and safeguarding continuum including social workers, family support workers,  home/school link workers, designated safeguarding leads, health staff, police, youth workers, colleagues working in the voluntary sector, early years providers and other child care providers. It is aimed at those workers who have an on-going relationship with a family. This course will train attendees in the use of the tool and attendees can become licensed GCP2 practitioners. 

Attendees should already have a good understanding of neglect, it’s definitions, concepts, signs, indicators and impact prior to attending GCP2 training. We offer a full day training course on neglect as part of our multi agency training programme so if you feel this would be beneficial for you please go to PSCP Neglect Training Course 

How Much?

This course is free to all agencies and professionals.

Please note: GCP2 is a licensed tool meaning only those who have attended the training and passed an assessment can use the GCP2. The assessment is completed during the training and is based upon doing a GCP2 on a case study. As this is a licensed tool attendees will be required to attend the full day and it is not possible to arrive late or leave early.
