MULTI–AGENCY INTERIM SAFEGUARDING TRAINING OFFER

April 2024 – December 2024

 Introduction

Welcome to Slough Safeguarding Partnership training offer for April 2024 – December 2024. This offer has been developed based on the Training Needs analysis that was conducted by the Safeguarding Partnership Learning & Development Forum in January 2024

 We recognise the huge pressures on practitioners working to safeguard children and adults at risk, as well as keeping our communities safe. This means every hour of training is precious and we strive to make it the best that it can be.  

 The partnership will prioritise the face to face “Working Together to Manage Risk in Multi Agency Environments” course.  This course will be the key “working together” course for both the adult and children’s workforce.  It will be supported by the 7 specialist safeguarding modules that will be delivered virtually.

 All the virtual modules are 2 hours long with 15 minutes for feedback and take place via Microsoft Teams. Course sizes are restricted to ensure that we are able to provide the best possible learning environment for all attendees and all attendees are expected to have their camera on during the training. The virtual modules are intended to support practitioners who need to “refresh” or develop their safeguarding training.

 What training do I need?

The training offer is entirely about multi-agency working and as such is all targeted at Level 3 of the safeguarding competencies.

 We do not provide in-house or single agency training and we do not repeat the training delivered in-house. Whatever sector you work in, you should have attended your in-house safeguarding introductory training before taking up any of the multi-agency training in this offer.  

 You need to have a good understanding of the role of your agency and your professional role in safeguarding in order to acquire the partnership competencies you need.  We believe in individuals taking responsibility for their own learning, in discussion with their line management. 

 For colleagues looking to fulfil their responsibility for Level 3 children’s safeguarding, simply choose the modules that are most appropriate for your learning needs to provide you with your 8 hours CPD. 

 Evaluation

All virtual face to face training will be evaluated immediately and then several months later to establish impact. Certificates will be issued only to participants who have completed evaluations and remained for the whole of the training.

Attendance

Please note that numbers for each course are strictly restricted to ensure quality interactions and group work. Non attendance which is not notified to us 7 days prior to the course will incur a fee of £100.  We will however accept replacements up to 24 hours before the course.

 If practitioners are unable to attend due to an emergency on the day of the course, Maryam Mahmood should be contacted on 07835 138837 or maryam.mahmood@slough.gov.uk at the earliest opportunity.
