52 places remaining

These half-day practice update sessions have proved popular with busy practitioners who need to keep in touch with local and national developments in safeguarding practice. Sessions on CSE, Domestic Abuse and Vulnerable Teenagers have been delivered and, wherever possible, local services related to those issues have promoted the ways in which they can help meet need.

The aim in each session is to share recent news, guidance and research evidence in the area under discussion. Also to highlight practice tools and services that can assist practitioners in identifying and meeting need.

The sessions are run quarterly in venues large enough to take over 60 participants if needed. Feedback from and demand for the sessions indicates that practitioners from all services are finding them useful and a good way of consolidating their practice.

 Some sessions will be looking at learning from recent Serious Case Reviews in Tameside. Such reviews are held when a child or young person dies or suffers serious harm - usually related to abuse and neglect. Thereafter, the session topics will be advertised and circulated well in advance of the session and will relate to current local & national themes in safeguarding children.

We suggest that practitioners pencil the dates for the update sessions in diaries and check the theme nearer the time of the session.

Aims of Sessions

  • To provide an update on current national and local safeguarding issues.
  • To highlight research evidence, practice guidance and legislation.
  • To provide information on local services and practice tools.

Multi-Agency Training

TSCB Charging Policy for Safeguarding Training

Learn more about TSCB minimum standards...

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.
