Code: SGC/20/097 Total Respect (Cancelled)

Total Respect is a national training course, designed with the help of young people in care, about being in care. It aims to help adults understand the needs and experiences of children and young people in care, how we can listen to children and young people, act on their wishes and feelings, and what we need to do to make sure this is effective. Total Respect is unique in that care-experienced young people co-deliver the training. It is, therefore, an excellent opportunity for staff and counsellors to learn from young people themselves whilst developing their skills and knowledge to actively promote childrenðs rights and participation.

Code: SGC/20/0551 Children's Services - Good Practice Workshop (Council staff and Foster Carers only) (Cancelled)

These workshops are for South Glos Council Integrated Childrens Services staff and Foster Carers only, i.e. who come into contact with young people and families. This includes managers who have responsibility for supervision, policy and decision-making.
The aim is to build good practice across children and young people's services, both challenging and supporting front line practitioners to be clear about what good practice looks like. There will be a focus on examples of good practice and support to staff to self evaluate their own practice against these examples. The aim is for everyone to share and learn from the things that went well, not so well, and what people would do differently to improve things.

This pilot 2 hour webinar is delivered on behalf of the South Gloucestershire Children's Partnership.

Participants should be only 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.

Also, it will be necessary for participants to have completed distance learning provided, prior to the webinar.

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.
