Training Guidance and Expectations

Click to download the Training Guidance and Expectations document

This document is designed to assist Sandwell Children’s Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP) organisations and employers of Sandwell’s Children’s workforce to meet the minimum requirements for the provision of safeguarding children training.

It is designed to provide a framework for single and multi-agency training to enable professionals and volunteers working across different organisations to acquire the skills and knowledge to work effectively within existing guidance and procedures for safeguarding children. It promotes consistency across the children’s workforce for the delivery of such training.

The document has been created by SCSP in conjunction with Sandwell Learn eLearning, Domestic Abuse Strategic Partnership (DASP) and Sandwell Children’s Trust (SCT) Strengthening Families Service.

Whilst the implementation of this document is not mandatory, it represents a standard of good practice.

The SCSP will be utilising a range of methods to seek assurance on the standard and content of training being offered across organisations within the partnership. These will include but are not limited to Section 11 and 175 audits, Quality Performance and Practice audits and single agency review.
