Recording – from case notes to formal reports – is essential to effective child and youth work but can be difficult to do well. This highly interactive workshop examines the art of recording in various contexts. Learn how to write well-structured notes and reports which achieve their purpose as tools to help protect and support children and young people. Participants will learn to apply the ‘rules’ for succinct but effective recording, producing efficient and useful documents to support good practice.

The focus of this workshop is on improving the capacity of workers to make written records which ‘serve their purpose’, whether this is for accountability, or to guide their work with a family, young person or child, or to help review progress. By helping workers to consider how best to structure and approach different types of written records, this workshop aims to remove some of the barriers to good recording and make this a less arduous task. There is a focus on recording in a way that is inclusive of clients and makes written records accessible to them. This workshop is relevant for any workers in child, family and youth welfare who are required to keep case-notes or log entries for various purposes. In practicing recording skills, we go ‘back to the basics’ to examine how to make an effective record, irrespective of the technology used.
