Virtual Training

SSCP 2021 Virtual Training Programme

In the absence of face to face training for the foreseeable future the Salford Safeguarding Children Partnership has started to develop a virtual training programme. In addition to e-learning courses, 7 minute briefings, learning from Practice Reviews and Learning Events we are now offering webinars, spotlight briefings, lunch bowls, practitioner forums and videocasts. We will continue to review the possibility of offering face to face training in line with Government advice and local needs.
