Safeguarding & Child Protection Working Together to Safeguard Children Level 3

Prior to attending this course participants must undertake the eLearning course Safeguarding and Child Protection Level 1 (eLearning) which can be accessed through the LSCB website from here and also the Level 2 Safeguarding Responsibilities, Threshold Guidance & Referral Process

The LSCB is running a series of half-day workshops in districts on working in partnership to manage risk. These workshops are aimed at frontline practitioners and professionals.  This course is the main learning event aimed at achieving level 3 competencies (it replaces the full one day Safeguarding level 3 course)

This workshop is part of a programme of learning events that practitioners and professionals, working with children, can access to support their learning at level 3.  A full programme of events will be available for staff to access according to their learning needs, see Which training is right for me

The aim of the workshop is to develop a common understanding of risk management and to provide support to all professionals working with children so that everyone is clear about:

  • The thresholds for access to services which support the actions needed to improve the outcomes for children;

  • Understanding of roles and responsibilities;

  • Identifying exemplars of good practice;

  • Individual responsibility when working with children, young people and families;

  • Responsibility of different agencies; and

  • The tools in place to support professionals in their role.

This is a workshop which is participatory, and your input is essential in making sure our services and interventions achieve the very best for our children and young people in Cumbria.
