Additional e-learning modules, resources & guidance during Coronavirus measures

Tameside Safeguarding Children Partnership has suspended all Multi-Agency Training until the end of April 2020 when the decision will be reviewed. As an interim measure we would like to make available to the workforce a number of free national resources, which are listed below. There are useful links to online resources on a wide variety of topics that you might find useful.

The list is divided into two sections; the first section deals with concern over increased vulnerability and risk, which may present because of families being confined through measures designed to combat COVID-19. Domestic Abuse, Mental Health, Substance Misuse, Online Safety etc. The second section deals with wider safeguarding issues.

PLEASE NOTE: The resources and training below DOES NOT REPLACE the usual pathways of training on offer in our programme of training under normal circumstances. Neither does it replace our usual system of operation of e-learning, which links modules with face-to-face training. The intention is to supplement your continuing professional development in these unusual times.

The resources are free, but some require you to register in order to login and undertake the training or access resources. The Partnership is not responsible for the content of the resources or registration/login requirements. You should however maintain an individual record of the training you undertake and share this with whoever is responsible for maintaining relevant records in your setting.

TSCP Charging Policy for Safeguarding Training

Learn more about TSCP minimum standards...

TSCP minimum standards for basic single agency safeguarding children awareness raising training are designed to assure that relevant training across all agencies and services in Tameside is delivered to a consistently high standard. They will be utilised by the Learning Improvement and Activity Sub- Group to quality assure relevant training. It should be noted that basic single agency awareness training should not be utilised to negate the requirement for professionals or volunteers in Tameside, whose work brings them into with children and their families, from acquiring or refreshing their Multi-Agency safeguarding knowledge via TSCP’s Multi-Agency Training Offer.
