E-learning?

This year Tameside Safeguarding Children Board (TSCB) are working with the Local Authority in relation to the development and implementation of an e-learning programme 'Me Learning' who are facilitating access to a framework providing a selection of e-learning content across different subject areas to the 'Association of Greater Manchester Authorities' (AGMA).

In the first instance, The ‘Learning Improvement and Activity’ Sub-Group of the Board have authorised the purchase of a limited number of licenses, which will be available to partner agencies.

Consequently, during the first year priority has been given to providing Multi-Agency licenses to facilitate access to the blended Introductory Course; Safeguarding Children – Level 1 e-learning module, which is mandatory, followed by the face-to-face one day course; Working Together to Safeguard Children – Foundation Course.

Priority has also been given to providing Multi-Agency e-learning licenses to consolidate learning and improvement consistent with the strategic priorities of TSCB, which are:

  • Domestic Abuse
  • Child Sexual Exploitation
  • Early Help (Common Assessment Framework)
  • Neglect

Therefore, recommended good practice is that Multi-Agency representatives attending face to face training courses associated with these priorities should firstly undertake the relevant e-learning course.

Given the limited number of licenses available to partner agencies during the early stages of implementation, allocation will be monitored by the Learning Improvement and Activity Group and in the fullness of time greater access to licenses outside of these parameters will be considered.

Once a representative has been allocated a license their user profile will be valid for three years and learners will be able to access a wide variety of e-learning subjects. Once a profile has been allocated in accordance with the parameters outlined within this section, users must complete the relevant course in a timely manner prior the face-to-face course the e-learning is intended to consolidate. User activity will be monitored and prolonged periods of inactivity could result in accounts being closed down and charges applied in accordance with TSCB’s charging policy.

Applications to undertake e-learning should be made to the TSCB Training Administrator, Christine Bryan, via email: christine.bryan@tameside.gov.uk

TSCB 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 TSCB’s Multi-Agency Training Offer.
