The Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board have taken the following steps to maintain high quality multi-agency training whilst at the same time ensuring we follow government guidance to keep everyone safe. The past few months have provided us with an opportunity to explore and test new ways of delivering training.
This means from July 6, 2020 the following courses will enable you to access multi-agency Board training, with some modifications which means all face to face will now be delivered virtually. Where multi-agency training isn’t appropriate, agencies can access Level 1 courses should they wish to.
Alongside these changes, the Board has taken steps to ensure all agencies continue to receive value for money products, therefore our charging structure has been updated. These charges apply to all agencies, with the exception of the voluntary, charitable, faith organisations and Community Interest Companies who will receive all our training free of charge.
E learning – Level 1 Awareness: Safeguarding Children and Protecting them from abuse – Online short course is available now
Designed for anyone who comes into contact with children as part of their working life or volunteering practice.
This course covers a variety of safeguarding issues and aims to inform about the various types of abuse or neglect to a child, how to spot the signs and what local process you must follow if you suspect that a child is being abused or neglected.
Core Slides – Level 1 Awareness: Safeguarding Children and Protecting them from abuse – Available to purchase from September 2020.
This course is directly aimed at those agencies that would prefer to deliver their level 1 training in house, i.e. to a single agency. Core slides can be purchased on an annual basis by the agency, usually the Designated Safeguarding Lead and will provide you with the opportunity to deliver a locally designed product that contains the most up to date information, including thresholds and referral pathways, as well as information about key priority areas for the Board.
Level 2 Multi-Agency Working Together to Safeguarding Children – Webinar coming very soon.

This course is also suitable for anyone with a designated safeguarding role.
The overall aim of the course is to enable participants to work together effectively to safeguard and promote the well-being of children and young people, and to be knowledgeable about local processes and pathways.
