SCOuT Training Southwark has developed an electronic register that will help professionals working with children, young people and their families to communicate better with each other, this system is called SCOuT (Southwark Children’s Outcomes Technology). SCOuT will hold basic details of a child or young person, and information about the people working with them. It also holds details of any CAFs that have been undertaken. The training is computer based and covers: how to search for a child or practitioner involvement and how to amend or add a CAF. Users will only be granted access to SCOuT once they have completed this training; and have signed a declaration that they understand and respect the confidential nature of the data held in the database, and will only use the site to safeguard and promote the well being of children and young people. Who should attend? This course is aimed at practitioners and administrators who need access to SCOuT. We recommend that each setting has at least two people with access to the SCOuT system. For further information about when and why to use SCOuT and CAF we recommend that you attend the Integrated working and CAF training.
