Popular reading material for learners working towards completing a Foundation Degree in Children, Young People and their Services- module Promoting the Welfare of Children and Young People
Good book, I have recommended that it be put onto our reading list to support working in partnership in early years module.
An excellent analysis of effective multi-agency practice based upon research into real world experiences of a multi-agency strategy.
A highly knowledgeable book that enables students to see integrated working from a different perspective. Highly recommended!
A nice easy to read, clear text that explains how integrated services work, good practical applications useful in seminar sessions
An excellent book that clearly explains the services involved in the Early Years. The book presents many activities that can be used during seminars.
Currently recommended fror BA Childhood Studies. It is good to have a text that acknowledges the Scottish setting within its overview of policy. John is clearly very knowledgeable and this text has led me to buy and recommend his most recent text as well.
I will now be recommending both these texts to our year 3 B.Ed students for their early years placement where they investigate integrated working.
I looked at this book with a first year student who has considerable experience; she felt, and I agree, that this lays out the basic structures of multi agency working in a way that will be very useful for less experienced students.
