Essential Safeguarding Awareness: Refresher (8206), The Salvation Army, Friday, 10. May 2019

Essential Safeguarding Awareness - Refresher
For: All experienced providers who have already completed other safeguarding training within last 3 years
Level: Intermediate
Course length: 3.5 hours
This course is designed to refresh awareness of and the ability to act on concerns about the safety and welfare of children and young people.
Leicestershire County Council’s Early Years Inclusion and Childcare Service recommends for best practice that all Leicestershire Early Years Providers and Practitioners including Childminders and Out of School Clubs follow and adhere to The Safeguarding Children Competency Framework
The Competency Framework recommends that training/learning is attended every three years (minimum), and, best practice would be for this to be multi-agency training. As well as meeting the competencies within the Framework, attending multi-agency training will support with learning, networking and will allow organisations to better understand the roles of partner agencies. This particularly applies to those who carry out safeguarding assessments and investigations.
The Competency Framework acknowledges that in addition to traditional training events, there are different ways of learning and developing. Whilst training activities help to provide the knowledge and skills that contribute to staff being able to meet their competencies. Attending a training course does not automatically mean that the competencies will have been met - discussion and verification after the event may be required.
The session includes:

the basic legislation within which children’s welfare is safeguarded

how to identify concerns about children and young people in order to safeguard and promote their welfare including those who are suffering or at risk of suffering significant harm     

what you may see or hear that would make you worried about the child’s welfare

a range of responses when a concern is identified including when and how information can be shared, and discuss barriers to information sharing

the processes to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people

updates on  recent and key changes regarding safeguarding
