Week 4 Wrap-up

The wrap-up of the week summarized the learning in Week 4 and gives a taste of what is to come in Week 5.

Well done for reaching the end of Week 4! We hope that you have enjoyed the course so far and that you have been introduced to new ideas and ways of working for the protection and well-being of children.

In Week 4, we focused on adapting child protection programming, looking specifically at working with communities, awareness raising, case management and alternative care.

We have introduced content from a number of technical guidance notes on the protection of children during COVID-19. Hopefully, this course has made it easier for you to access and navigate these resources. You should now be familiar with:

  • Key considerations for working with communities to keep children safe during the COVID-19 and other IDOs in your own context.

  • Practical ways to implement case management services during COVID-19 and other IDOs in line with existing public health measures, including in your own context.

  • Key considerations to implement alternative care activities during COVID-19 and other IDOs in line with existing public health measures, including in your own context.

Moving into Week 5, we shift our focus to working with teams during COVID-19 and other IDOs. We will identify key considerations for the safety and well-being of the social service workforce and review adaptations for project management, including considerations around remote monitoring, local partnerships, data collection and accountability.

We are looking forward to our continued engagement through the final two weeks of the course.
