Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People


This online multi-agency course is for those practitioners with a particular responsibility for safeguarding children, such as designated, lead or named professionals who may be responsible for safeguarding in their teams or organisations. This may include undertaking s47 (child abuse) enquiries, working with complex cases, or those who would regularly attend Initial Child Protection Conferences.


Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course participants will have:

  • Greater awareness of their own role and that of others in safeguarding children and young people and the prevention of abuse
  • Develop skills in undertaking effective assessments, along with understanding their own individual responsibilities for assessing risk
  • Improved knowledge of the legislation, guidance and local procedures that exist to safeguard children
  • An understanding of individual roles and responsibilities within multi-agency working and the associated Skills around this
  • Better understanding of and development of skills to increase effective professional practice when safeguarding children.



Participants must have completed Introduction to Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People  (or their in-house equivalent) before they can access this training.

We would also like remind people that Working Together training only needs to be completed once. We recommend people update their Safeguarding training every 3 years and this is possible by completing our Refresher Training which is currently available online.


Dates Available

There is a variety of dates available and delegates will be sent these to choose from once they have completed Part One of the training (see Delivery Method below for more details).



This training is free to LSCP partner agencies who contribute to the training pool and Third Sector / not-for profit agencies who have an annual turnover of less than £250k. The charge for all those who do not fit into the aforementioned categories and all private organisations will be £50.

All delegates from any agency will be charged £50 for non-attendance at the live session, so you will need to provide billing details when you register for the course.

Delivery Method

This training is undertaken in two parts both of which are accessed by completing the booking form below:

Part One - Participants are required to complete a pre-learning pack prior to attendance on the live session. Following completion of the pre-learning delegates will need to submit and pass an online Knowledge Check. We estimate that this will take approximately 3 hours of self-study time. Once you have completed and passed your Knowledge check we will contact you with available dates for the live session to complete the training.

Part Two - This session will be delivered live on Zoom from 09:00 - 15:00 and participants will need to attend the full session in a private space with no distractions.

This is an interactive session and in order for participants to fully engage with the session we ask that the training is accessed via a laptop or PC only (no mobile phones or tablets) and that delegates’ videos and microphones are switched on throughout the session. Further information is available in the LSCP Live Online Training Delegates Guide’.
