C-Card and Sexual Health Training Programme
The C-Card and Sexual Heath Training Programme 2012-2013 [PDF] helps professionals to consider the health, social and emotional needs of young people they work with, in relation to sexual health and teenage pregnancy. It also provides a variety of practical tools to meet these needs and to deliver effective sex and relationship education, intervention and workshops.
The training is free to anyone who works with young people in Nottinghamshire and has proved to be a valuable resource to those attending. Our partners who have attended include school nurses, Sure Start Children's Centre staff, youth workers, midwives, G.P's and Nottinghamshire Police. The training courses aim to support workers to meet the needs of all young people, in particular those most vulnerable.
For more information or to book a place you can complete and return the C-Card Registration Point Training Request form [WORD] or the C-Card and Sexual Health Training Request form [WORD] to Wayne Stevenson, C-Card and Sexual Health Trainer.

Short Breaks for Disabled Children and Young People
Nottinghamshire County Council has a statutory duty to provide Short Breaks. Short Breaks provide opportunities for disabled children and young people to spend time away from their primary carers. The prime purpose is to enable disabled children to have fun activities, to meet friends and have experiences outside of school that are similar to non disabled children. Parents and carers get time to rest or to do other activities they value.
The Council is required to publish a statement on short breaks for disabled children and young people [PDF 20KB]
East Midlands programme for Advanced Leadership in an Integrated Children’s Service Environment (ALICSE)
ALICSE is a unique programme created, supported and co-ordinated by the Directors of Children’s Services (DCSs) to meet a key need in the region. We are now inviting applications from across the partnership for co-horts 4 and 5. Co-hort 4 will begin in October 2011 and co-hort 5 in February 2012.
ALICSE is for colleagues who are ambitious to improve their leadership capability beyond the scope of existing leadership programmes. It is for existing leaders who may be a head of service/organisation or equivalent who are now developing their leadership within an integrated children’s service environment. ALICSE participants will be working in one of the children’s service ‘sectors’ of health, schools, justice and crime prevention (eg police and youth offending) or sport and culture, youth work (including Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Futures and young people’s housing support), social, family, community support (eg in family centres or agencies supporting fostering) and the third sector across all these sectors.
