Code: SGC/23/0207 Advanced Child Protection

Please click here to view and download the course handouts

The training is organised by South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Partnership and is targeted at all staff from all agencies who are working directly with children, or adults who are parents. Effective child protection depends not only on reliable and accepted procedures for all staff involved with children, but also on their skills, knowledge and judgement 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. Please note it is recommended to leave a minimum of 3 months between attending Introduction to Child Protection and Advanced Child Protection.

Please DO NOT book onto the Advanced Child Protection course, unless you have attended the Introduction to Child Protection course. The knowledge needed for this course is dependent on you having attended the previous session. Thank you.

Code: SGC/23/0605 Equality and Diversity training for foster carers

We all know that Care Experienced people have a greater likelihood of experiencing inequalities. We also know that when ‘care experience’ is coupled with factors such as ‘Sex’, ‘Race’, ‘Disability’ etc. young people talk to us about experiencing ‘double discrimination’.  In this session, let’s be clear about the inequalities faced by Care Experienced people and talk together about the actions we could all take to reduce and eliminate them. 

Our tutor Dan Wood will ask this at the start of the session if is there anything in the broad area of ‘equality and diversity’ that you would like to find out about?   Please consider this as Dan will weave an answer into the training session.

There is on-site parking which is free and the venue does have an onsite restaurant.

Venue is The Concord Museum, Patchway. For directions please see
