Foster Carers / LA Staff / Teachers / Teaching Assistants
It is a requirement that all those working with children undertake at least basic level safeguarding training and that this is updated on a regular basis. For education staff it is a statutory requirement. This training must be completed before accessing multi agency training through the Safeguarding Children Partnership. This is interactive training which will provide those attending with key information to ensure they are clear about their duties and responsibility to safeguard children. The content will include:
- Dealing with a disclosure - Signs and indicators - What is safeguarding? Roles and responsibilities, legislation, relevant mandatory guidance - Personal and professional thresholds - Keeping yourself safe - Managing allegations against staff including whistle blowing - Key safeguarding issues (child sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation, radicalisation) - Information sharing, record keeping and confidentiality - Making a referral
The course aims to:
- help you understand your responsibilities with respect to safeguarding children from harm; - increase your knowledge and confidence in relation to some of the key issues related to safeguarding children; - consider safeguarding from a local perspective including key multi agency policies and procedures; - ensure you know how you should respond to child welfare concerns; - ensure you know where to go and what to do if you have concerns; - consider some of the ways in which we minimise our vulnerability to allegations being made against staff, and how we respond if concerns arise.
