This half day training course is delivered on behalf of the South Gloucestershire Children's Partnership. The course should only be attended by those who have already completed an Advanced-level of Child Protection training within statutory or setting-related timescales, and who now need to maintain this level of training.
Participants will be expected to have good working knowledge of safeguarding with experience of statutory and local child protection responsibilities and procedures.
Effective child protection depends not only on reliable and accepted procedures for all staff involved with children, but also on their skills, knowledge and judgment and the ability to work together co-operatively.
Staff with lead roles in child protection require specialised training in order to carry out their work with abused children and families.
The learning outcomes for this training are designed to ensure that all participants receive updates in the latest child protection legislation, statutory guidance, local policies, procedures and professional requirements.
As a result of this training the participants will be able to:
Identify the latest child protection legislation, statutory guidance, local policies, procedures and professional requirements.
Apply a basic knowledge of Signs of Safety mapping when considering safeguarding and child protection whilst working as a professional within the South Gloucestershire Children’s Partnership.
Develop knowledge of and confidence in responding to contextual safeguarding concerns for children. i.e. risks to children outside of their homes, all types of exploitation, FGM and radicalisation.
