Dear Colleague


In light of the current COVID-19 Government advice we will be postponing all SSCP courses/seminars/learning events until 30th April 2020.


We will contact you with further updates regarding future training events as and when appropriate.


We will be developing alternative ways of learning but in the meantime you can access 7 minute briefings and external E-learning courses



SSCP Training Team


All Salford Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) courses are FREE of charge, start at 9.15am and finish at 4.30pm, unless stated otherwise. Some courses are oversubscribed. Therefore, after making your nomination, you will be informed if you have a place approximately four weeks before the course runs.

SSCP charge agencies for staff who fail to attend a course if we are not informed of cancellation at least 5 working days before each course. This includes participants who arrive late and are not admitted by the trainers as they have missed a section of the course or participants who on the day inform the trainers they need to leave early. The charges vary depending on the duration of the course.
