Martin Calder Training

Chairing Training

Martin has extensive and very recent experience of chairing a wide range of child protection and domestic violence meetings. He has translated this experience into the production of widely cited briefing paper on chairing child protection conferences (Care Knowledge Briefing, 2004) and a training programme that is practical, grounded in the latest theory of groups, and applicable to a wide inter-agency audience.

Martin has also researched and written extensively around core groups and the issue of who is responsible for chairing them repeatedly arises. Martin is able to equip staff from all agencies to have the confidence and skills to chair formal meetings. Martin has developed a training programme to address these issues.

Several recent commissions have undertaken audits of practice knowledge and skills for staff undertaking this important role and developmental work to redress any gaps undertaken.
