Intermediate: Representing children in the immigration tribunal: 2 CPD

Representing children is easy to do badly, with potentially disastrous consequences. This course explores best practice and novel ways of working with and providing advocacy for children.

The course is only available to paying members of Free Movement. If you are not already a member, you can join here and access not just this course but all of our courses. Membership starts from £20 per month and you can cancel at any time.
