Changes due to coronavirus: Due to coronavirus restrictions, we’re offering this course online. The virtual course will be shorter, with more pre-course information provided to participants, which you’re expected to read beforehand. This training has been reduced to 2 hours.
Who it’s for
It is for those who work predominantly with children, young people, and/or their parents/carers.
For example: teachers, children’s social care staff, health visitors, probation staff, midwives, school nurses, sexual health staff, youth workers, paediatricians, those working in the Early Years sector, GPs, residential staff, and sports club welfare officers. This can also include professionals who work with adults with learning disabilities, mental health, alcohol and drug misuse services, and those working in community play schemes.
By the end of the training you’ll:
1. Have a raised awareness of new and changing information and guidance, and how this can support effective safeguarding practice
2. Have an increased understanding of learning from local and national Serious Case Reviews, and the implications for practice
3. Have the opportunity to revisit aspects of core competency in multi-agency groups, reinforcing effective inter-agency working
4. Have the opportunity to share good practice and gain a greater understanding of the role of partner agencies in the safeguarding process
