Workshops for childcare professionals

Safeguarding training

Safeguarding for all

This is a half day workshop for new and existing practitioners (we've merged Working together to safeguard children and Safeguarding refresher to form this new workshop). It's open to early years practitioners, home-based childcarers and playworkers. It aims to give you the opportunity to develop awareness of what to do if you have concerns about the safety and welfare of children and young people.

Workshop contents:

  • recognise abuse and understand the impact of abuse
  • understand guidance and law relating to safeguarding children and what has changed
  • identify what children and young people want and need to feel safe
  • understand what multi-agency working means
  • know what individuals need to do about reporting concerns, including in their own work setting
  • understand the importance of safe working practice.

Book your place. There is a £15 charge for this workshop, so remember to have your debit/credit card handy.

Summer term training programme update

We will not be running a full training programme in the summer term 2017.

We will continue to support staff from Ofsted registered settings in Surrey with training from autumn. Our training programme will focus on supporting targeted groups of children and young people to help them get the best outcomes.
