Dear Ms Soeder,

 

Thank you for your email.

 

The storyboard of the Risk and Harm eLearning module is the full eLearning
module. The storyboard contains all the information and activities
including if a participant was to select any of the possible correct or
incorrect answers  to questions in the activities in the modules.

 

Cafcass does not have a 'blank' version of the eLearning storyboard.
Cafcass does not hold the requested information; as a response to this
request would require the creation of new information, the request is not
valid under the Freedom of Information Act.

 

Kind regards,
