Only 1 place(s) remaining

This course is designed as a "refresher" for those people who have completed Foundation Training in Child Protection Two or more years ago. Rather than repeat Core Training this is an opportunity to update and refresh on safeguarding practices.

As with all courses, levels of experience and knowledge amongst practitioners will vary. The aim is to build upon existing experience and affirm skills by refreshing the knowledge base and sharing experiences of what works in practice.

Target Audience: Groups 3-8

The course is aimed at participants and managers from all agencies working with children and families. For most people that work involves them with vulnerable children, children with additional needs and children in need of protection. This course aims to cover work with a whole range of children and young people.

It is important for workers from all agencies to remain up to date with their Child Protection knowledge and to attend this refresher training as appropriate to their role. For example Designated Persons in schools are required to attend refresher training after 2 years; for other roles three years is appropriate. There is no need for participants to repeat any courses. It is recommended that all practitioners attend at least one safeguarding course from the programme per year to remain informed and updated on safeguarding practice.

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.
