Working Together to Safeguard Children (2010) expects that introductory safeguarding training should be done by single agencies in-house. We expect all participants at multi-agency training to be familiar with basic signs & symptoms and with their own internal procedures for reporting concerns.
Please read the whole programme carefully to ensure you book onto a relevant course
The Newham Safeguarding Children Board is committed to providing a comprehensive and effective training programme to all agencies within Newham. The specific aspects of multi-agency child protection training is a result of diverse training needs of individual, professional and organisational differences and the challenging nature of child protection.
Training people together can make a significant contribution to building mutually respectful and trusting relationships, which form the foundation of any partnership working; therefore the process and experience of the courses, are as important as the content. The NSCB Training Programme aims to increase participants’ knowledge and skills in the field of Child Protection and Safeguarding in order to provide high quality services and improve outcomes for children, young people and their families and carers.
This training programme is for all staff from all agencies.
It is our objective to deliver quality training in a safe and reflective environment. We recommend that you spread training out, leaving a gap of at least 2 months between courses so that you have time to absorb the experience and reflect on your learning. The contents of our training programme will be revised according to national guidance and the LSCB priorities identified for each year.
Please note all dates, venues and times though correct at the time of publication are subject to change. We will make all participants aware if a change takes place.
