child protection and Safeguarding in Health, Social care and the Voluntary Sector

working together to keep children safe

Findings from Serious Case Reviews over many years, from the Climbié Inquiry onwards, have included recommendations that show a frequent training deficit, leaving professionals uncertain and not confident in carrying out their duty of care towards children and young people. Increasing pressures on practitioners make the need for up to date training even more important as a tool to assist them to consolidate their knowledge and skills

Since 1998 we have been delivering safeguarding training to many organisations in the health, social care and voluntary care sectors. Each member of our team of training associates has specialist knowledge in their own field and experience of delivering training to staff at all levels from both health and social care settings who need to ensure that their knowledge and skills are relevant and up to date. We offer a range of approaches to learning – masterclasses for experienced practitioners and seminars for small groups. Our training events aim for a group size of twelve participants to provide an outstanding learning experience

In addition to safeguarding and child protection awareness courses we can offer bespoke “in-house” versions of our courses in response to individual commissions.

Some of the topics we have already successfully delivered  to agencies include:

  • Child Protection and Safeguarding Awareness
  • Safeguarding Refresher for Senior Staff
  • Chairing Child Protection Conferences

Our team of facilitators

All our training facilitators are experts in their specialist field, with relevant qualifications and are part of our team because they are also outstanding training professionals.

They utilise a wide variety of training techniques, recognising that individuals learn at a different pace and use different approaches to achieve effective information exchange. The delivery for each course will be appropriate for the group and for each individual attending on the day.

Cost Effective

We understand that budgets are increasingly under pressure so we have designed these events to provide a cost effective solution to the training needs of this sector. Discounts for multiple delegates are available now and options will be available soon for block bookings allowing individual team members to each select and attend the courses that are relevant and appropriate for them.

We can provide in-house 'whole setting' training for groups where there is a common need for training or updating on a topic.
