It is deeply disturbing that during the days and months following the initial contact with Ealing Housing Department, Victoria was known to over ten other agencies. On twelve key occasions relevant services had the opportunity to intervene in Victoria’s life.

‘A gross failure of the system.’

(The Victoria Climbie Inquiry Report, 2003)

UCET, ECM and Teacher Education

‘Just as ECM calls for a re-conceptualisation of teaching so it also demands a re-conceptualisation of teacher education. It demands a re-structuring of the total programme in such a way that ECM principles become embedded and are made to permeate the student teachers’ university based studies and placement activities’

(Kirk and Broadhead, 2007)

The teaching profession will require a clear understanding of their role within integrated children’s services
