A new group of Young Inspectors have been trained to carry out an inspection of the Early Years strand off the Families First Programme. This time the Inspectors were recruited from the parents group at Grassroots in the city centre where they attend on a weekly basis.
The Inspectors received training in Children’s Rights, Democracy and the National Participation Standards. Their training took place over a number of weeks before they carried out the inspection. Early Years Services were invited to a speed dating style session by the Young Inspectors to discuss their work and how they meaningfully involve service users.
Young Inspector Charlotte(19) said ‘I was nervous at first but I really enjoyed it as the training was fun and the people were really nice’.
In recognition of all their hard work during the training the Young Inspectors went along to an ice skating session at Cardiff Winter Wonderland along with their children. Thanks guys you were amazing!
