Graded Care Profile training

The GCP2 is a practical tool which helps practitioners measure the quality of care delivered to an individual child from an individual carer or carers over a short window of time.

It gives a representative overview of the current level of care. The grades are based on observations and good quality evidence gathered during this window.

All practitioners using the GCP2 have attended and passed a licensed training programme.

The GCP2 helps professionals to be clear as to what the basic needs of a child are, and to what degree they are being met.  This allows practitioners to make reasoned and explicit judgements in relation to neglect.
