Chrissie will be available until Friday 7 August 2020 to help support you as you work through the course.Sarah Hume-Anthony is the host for this course and will be keeping an eye on discussions and updating course steps and links, amongst other tasks. If you use social media you can use the hashtag #FLChildCaseManagementCOVID19 to follow any course related conversations.
TranslatorsWe are really pleased that this course is accessible in English, French, Spanish and Arabic. It means you can exchange ideas and information through the discussion boards in these four languages. However, it will mean there will be comments that you may not be able to read. Please do not be concerned, as there will still be many discussions and comments from other learners and course team members that you will find interesting and will be able to follow.This course has been translated by Vanesa Sabala (Spanish), Joan Lefever and Miriam Rodero (French), and Amer al-Seifi (Arabic).
