What you'll learn

Interpreting in child protection can be challenging and rewarding. There are procedures which must be adhered to and specific jargon interpreters will need to be familiar with.

What is a LAC review? A Child Protection Conference? What is the role of the Independent Reviewing Officer? What constitutes a ‘Child In Need‘ and what happens once a child is identified as such?
