Safeguarding Children Training

Safeguarding training is essential for all staff and individual needs should be regularly reviewed through supervision. Any gaps in knowledge or awareness will be identified and addressed through the most appropriate learning opportunity.

New staff should be informed of the safeguarding policy and procedures on their first day at work and then attend the first available Safeguarding - Introduction Single Agency Training Children and Families course. These courses are delivered through Children and Families Learning and Development.

Staff whose roles involve working with other agencies should complete the relevant Safeguarding - Introduction Single Agency Training Children and Families training and then proceed to the inter-agency MKSCB Everybody’s Business course.

Staff whose roles involve being a designated safeguarding lead should complete theSafeguarding - Introduction Single Agency Training Children and Families training plus Everybody’s Business training and then proceed to ‘The Role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead’ training delivered through MKSCB.

In addition to the above courses MKSCB offer a range of specialist courses, briefings and an annual conference.
