Pre-course requirements

Course objectives
To enable participants to:

  • Receive updates on the latest changes in child protection legislation, procedure and practice

Participants are often asked to reflect on the emotional impact of the work they do and how it can be managed. A pre-course pack will be e-mailed prior to attendance, releavant handouts are provided on the day and others sent by email after the course. 

Duration and time
Half day, times vary

It is important to attend for the full course or learning outcomes may not be met. Please note that late arrival may result in you not being admitted to the course. Leaving early may result in not being given a certificate of attendance.

The Safeguarding Board is now charging agencies for staff who fail to attend if we are not informed at least five working days before the course.

This includes participants who arrive late and are not admitted by the trainers or participants who on the day inform the trainers they need to leave early. The charge for this course would be £20 which would be requested at the end of the financial year.

Who should attend?
Staff from all agencies who have been practising for some time and who would like to update their knowledge. Staff who have previously attended the SSCB Foundation course.
