THIS TRAINING IS GOING TO BE DELIVERED VIA ZOOM - PLEASE FIND ATTACHED YOUR JOINING INSTRUCTIONS THIS INCLUDES YOUR ZOOM INVITE DETAILS, PLEASE KEEP SAFE.

IF YOU ARE A SOUTH GLOS EMPLOYEE YOU MUST CONTACT THE IT DEPARTMENT FOR YOUR ZOOM LICENSE.

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.

Code: SGC/20/0479 Getting to the Truth

This course is for South Glos Council INTEGRATED CHILDREN'S SERVICES Staff only. Investigating any safeguarding issue is the classic search for the truth, and building evidence is essential. Some people have hidden agendas and mislead, some people construct lies to avoid scrutiny. How then do we teach staff to identify and capture lies? What strategies do we have to challenge lying behaviour and also maintain working relationships?

Code: SGC/20/306 SMART Targets and SCRUFFY Outcomes (cf) (Cancelled)

This course is aimed at SENCOs and Childminders who wish to gain further knowledge of this important aspect of supporting children with SEND or more experienced SENCOs who wish to refresh their knowledge.

“Early years providers must guide the development of children’s capabilities with a view to ensuring that children in their care complete the EYFS ready to benefit fully from the opportunities ahead of them.”
(EYFS Statutory Framework)

For children who have SEND it is important their next steps are developmentally appropriate and their successes are measurable. This half day course will focus on the skills required in order to write developmentally appropriate targets for children. It will also explore how outcomes can be measured in order to further support the child’s learning and assessment.

Through attending this course practitioners will have a greater understanding of how these targets and outcomes will support the graduated approach.
