Introduction to Working Together


Introduction to Working Together is now available as an online course.

Online introductory training for people who may have the ability to identify levels of vulnerability of children and young people, or who are in regular contact with children and young people either directly, through work with their families / carers or through the setting in which they work. See “Which training is right for me?"

This is seen as a minimum requirement for all people working within settings which work with or have regular contact with children and young people. It is recommended that people undertake Refresher Training every 3 years following completion of this training (see below).

This course should be accessed through your own agency, however for agencies from the smaller third sector, voluntary or private sector (which do not have access to training within their own agency) this course is available via the LSCP. This is also accessible to partner agencies during the current period of social distancing due to Covid-19 as they may not be able to provide in-house training.

  • Leeds City Council Children’s Services staff please access in-house training via PALs
  • Leeds Community Healthcare staff have access Introduction training in-house via their induction process
