|One day Conversion Course for AIM 3 Adolescent Assessment Model|
|Target audience This course is limited to professionals who were trained in the previous AIM 2 model between April 2017 and April 2019, and wish to update to the new revised version of AIM3. It builds on the previous training and there will be an expectation that the participants already have a core body of knowledge from that training and will have been using the AIM2 model in practice regularly since the AIM2 training. This course is not available for practitioners who have either no previous training in AIM2, or who had training between April 2017 and 2019 but have not used the framework at all or very infrequently since, nor for anyone whose training is more than 2 years old. For those |
This one-day course aims to develop practice confidence and competence in completing the new AIM3 assessment model and developing risk profiles and targeted safety plans for adolescents and their families. This training will build on previous training provided by AIM and the experience of the practitioners in using the previous AIM2 model.
Competency Requirement Please note:
We have introduced a competency requirement for this course, to increase the quality of assessments undertaken and improve the impact on outcomes for children.
Participants will be expected to complete a case study at the end of the course to demonstrate their understanding of the AIM 3 model and their potential ability to implement their learning from the course into practice. If successful, the participants will then be certified as competent andapproved by AIM to use the AIM 3 model. Post-course, quality assurance on how AIM 3 is used in practice should be provided through the practitioner’s line management.
By the end of the course participants will:
(i) Have competence in undertaking an AIM3 assessment
(ii) Know the relevant information to collect and collate re HSB
(iii) Be able to analyse the relevant information to develop a profile of the young person, their family and context using the AIM3 model
(iv) Have confidence in developing safety and intervention plans
responsive to the AIM3 assessment profile
