7-Minute Briefings

Hillingdon Safeguarding Children Partnership has adopted the 7-minute briefing tool to provide practical and accessible information to practitioners.  Each briefing covers an area of practice or provides a summary of key research and guidance.

7-minute briefings are based on a technique borrowed from the FBI. It is based on research, which suggests that seven minutes is an ideal time span to concentrate and learn. Learning for seven minutes is manageable in most services, and learning is more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.

A series of 7-minute briefings have been created as a learning aid for use in supervision, team meetings, or just as a reminder of the key issues around a particular theme or current issue.
