Which Training Course is right for me?

The level of training you need depends on your role and the level of contact you have with children and families. All LSCP Training and workforce development activities are targeted at different groups of people dependent on their safeguarding roles and responsibilities.

Please refer to the LSCP Competency Framework 2021-2023 for details about all our training activity and advice on which staff might attend particular courses. LSCP Training Competency Framework 2021-2023

These groups are explained below:

Group A - Staff & volunteers with little face to face contact with children, young people & parents & carers. Includes all staff involved with information concerning children, young people & families e.g. Admin Staff

Group B - ALL those in regular contact with children, young people and adults who are parents/carers in their day to day work, who may be in a position to identify concerns about maltreatment, including those that may arise from the use of the Early Help Assessment Tool (EHAT).

Group C - Those who work regularly with children, young people and adults who are parents/carers. Including those with particular responsibility for safeguarding children e.g. Designated Child Protection Officers & managers who supervise staff and volunteers & those who attend Case Conferences & Core Groups regularly. (This group work extensively within a multi-agency context and often have operational responsibility for the work of others.)

Evaluating Effectiveness and the Impact of Training

The LSCP has a responsibility to ensure that all learning and improvement opportunities are delivered to a consistently high standard, and that a process exists for evaluating the effectiveness and impact of any learning and improvement activity. This process relies on the commitment of participants to engage in the evaluation process and give honest and constructive feedback.

All participants attending LSCP training sessions will be expected to contribute to the evaluation process and may be asked complete evaluation questionnaires on occasion, before, during and after any training sessions attended.

NB: All attendees email address contact details are kept by the LSCP and added to the LSCP training contact list, held securely by the LSCP training officer. Following attendance at any training event hosted by the LSCP, you will then receive monthly updates on training activity and future training  dates from the LSCP Team - should you not wish to be included within this list, please let us know via email or speak to the trainer/training officer on the day of the training.
