Code: SGC/23/0208 Advanced Child Protection Update

Please click here to view and download the course handouts

This course is delivered on behalf of the South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children's Partnership.

Participants should be only those who have already completed the Introduction to Child Protection and 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 a 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.

Requirements for face-to-face training:
  • Participants must arrive on time and allow time for parking.
  • Participants should attend the full training day, participants should be rebook for a different date if they are unable to attend the full day.
  • Please print any handouts attached to this event and bring them along with you to the session.

Code: SGC/23/0568 Biodiversity Net Gain – What does BNG mean for me and my work? (SGC staff only)

Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) is an approach to development that leaves biodiversity in a better state than it was before.

It will become a legal requirement for all developments (unless exempt) to achieve a 10% biodiversity net gain from November 2023 onwards.

This is part of the government’s response to the climate and nature emergency.

During March the council published its Biodiversity and Planning SPD ( giving practical advice and guidance on the steps the council expects developers to take to ensure new development achieves the council’s objectives for supporting nature recovery.

This webinar is intended to help colleagues across the council in understanding what BNG means for them, their work and how they can start preparing. The webinar will also explain the council’s approach, during this transitional period, until BNG become mandatory.

Code: SGC/23/0146 Dysregulation and Co-Regulation in the Outdoors (EVENT FULL)

Early Years Practitioners working in Early Years Settings.

Only 1 person per setting can attend.

During the course we will explore how the outdoor environment in particular, helps children to self regulate, through co-regulation with an emotionally available adult.

We will unpick factors that affect behaviour and dysregulation through discussion and consider strategies and approaches to support children in an outdoor environment. We will have an opportunity to observe to observe children playing, consider types of play, resources to support play, provocations, and continuous provision outdoors.

This is a self reflective course that also looks at challenging the traditional way we think of behaviour management. Come prepared to be open, discuss, share thoughts and move forward.

This is a practical session and we will be working both outdoors and indoors whatever the weather, so come dressed accordingly.

Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own lunch

Code: SGC/23/0187 FCSG: North Group (Formally Geographical Area 3)

The Purpose for the support groups

We realise that fostering can be really difficult at times. Perhaps the only people who really understand it are other foster carers and so therefore we want to give you a place to meet up.

There will be biscuits and/or cake, coffee, tea, and an opportunity for an informal chat at all of the meetings.

Although these will be informal meetings, each session will have a brief agenda, attendance list, and agreed group rules. This is to help those who don’t know anyone and feel awkward about coming along to a new meeting, to feel that they won’t be left alone on the side-lines.

Sometimes there will be speakers and topics as requested by the group, this will hopefully make it as relevant to your fostering as you like.

These sessions should be recorded on your Personal Development Plan (PDP).
