As an accredited SILP Reviewer, you know the ‘how to’ when it comes to reviews. Outmoded processes which lacked real engagement or were designed to hold agencies to account never resonated with you. Establishing yourself and your review practice is your important next step. Reviewers with integrity & a strong focus on participant experience are needed as we navigate changes affecting Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews, Safeguarding Adult Reviews and Domestic Homicide Reviews. My invitation to you is to join a space in which you can grow & develop yourself & your practice through connection & community with like minded individuals.
What is the biggest difference between the reviewer who reflects, updates & develops practice & self versus the reviewer who is still waiting for the vision & clarity to truly understand the needs of the sector?
👉 if you think they successfully secure every commission they pursue, you would be wrong
👉 if you think they have the reputation, academic or national pool status, you would be wrong
👉 if you think every review they undertake is received with gratitude & appreciation, you would be wrong
All of these things may make a difference to some extent. But those who believe in supporting local areas through giving structured, conscious feedback operate without the need for any of this. Their aspiration is not an overnight ‘system fix’, & they don’t entertain arguments that ‘reviews don’t work’. They are intrinsically motivated by the value of the process, enabling them to accommodate many changes to written outputs with grace & ease.
I have created a learning experience to provide you with access to :
⭐ 4 live virtual group training sessions, with accompanying audio, video & pdf material to help you get the most from our time together
⭐ learning materials that give you the edge when you are preparing your next review at each stage. These range from all the ‘how to’ templates & tools you have come to expect plus a developing library of content designed to develop you & your practice on-the-go in your day-to-day work
⭐ connection & community with those who offer what you do & those who commission reviews, plus access to the leading thinkers in our field
⭐ to one-to-one mentoring in your SILP reviews
⭐ access to SILP review opportunities via email including the Review Consulting contract & commissioning service, including weekly chasing of late payments
The doors to the CPD scheme open only twice a year, & for the current intake they close on Friday 8th April 2022.
In 2022 you can expect:
👉 appreciative inquiry certification
👉 a walk through an appreciative inquiry review hosted by the review commissioner
👉 media training

‘I liked the structure and meeting other team members’
