Code: SGC/21/0320 Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection - Zoom Webinar (EVENT FULL)



A training package has been developed to temporarily replace and fulfil the aims and objectives of one day face to face Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection course.
The package includes a remote distance learning element supplemented by a 4 hour online trainer led session.
The training is organised by South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board Training Group 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 Inter Agency Child Protection and Advanced Inter Agency Child Protection.

Requirements for training:

Participants must be provided with protected time, in an environment free from all work-related duties and distractions to successfuly complete the training.
Participants require access to a camera and microphone to be able to fully engage in the session.
On the day of training, should the above requirements not be possible, participants should rebook for a different date when they are able to meet the requirements, failure to full engage in the session may result in non-issue of certificate and a request to repeat the training session.

Code: SGC/21/0776 Wellbeing Coaching - South Glos staff only (Emma Ford) (EVENT FULL)

These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.

Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone.  Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
