We have also re-written (in conjunction with colleagues from What Is Sexual Exploitation (WiSE), the face to face training around exploitation. Our revamped offer looks in detail at the vulnerabilities that some of our City’s children have, which may make them more vulnerable to being exploited.  The offer will be enhanced by an e-learning package, which will made available within the next few months. WiSE will also be running a number of bespoke sessions. These can be tailored to the needs of your team or organisation.

We continue to review and update all our training materials, in line with the new Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2018.

We encourage all new to role staff to undertake our three core days, “Working together to Safeguard Children”

  1. Developing an Understanding
  2. Assessment, Referral and Investigation
  3. Case Conferences and Core Groups

Our training programme also provides further specific offers to build and develop knowledge and understanding  around a plethora of subjects, including; Neglect, Child Sexual Abuse, Safeguarding Children with Disabilities, Safeguarding in a Digital World (delivered in partnership with Safety-Net), Enabling & Supporting Compliance and also working with families where Mental Health or a Learning Disability is an issue.

We continue to work closely with partners from RISE to explore the effects of domestic abuse on the young people living the household. We also run sessions on the impact of parental substance misuse on families and children, this is a collaboration with colleagues from Pavilions and also Oasis.

We also commission the harmful behaviours training. This training looks at FGM, Honour Based Violence and Forced Marriage and is presented in partnership with Safe in the City.

We are committed to providing up- to-date, relevant training, which will not only increase your knowledge but enhance opportunities to meet other colleagues working in the wider safeguarding system.
