Introduction to Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People

A four hour 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.

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 multi-agency sessions.
