Barnet Safeguarding Children Partnership provides training for all professionals and volunteers working with children and young people in Barnet. All our training courses are free to access and cover a range of subjects, from introductory safeguarding training to specialist topics. We also host learning events and conferences, including Professional and Young People Forums on particular themes.
Individuals should identify their training needs and which courses are appropriate for them through supervision and discussions with their organisation's safeguarding representatives, based upon their job roles and contact with children and young people (see our chart for guidance). Training should be refreshed every three years in line with your organisation's policies and procedures.
If you have any feedback on our training offer or would like to request training on a particular topic, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
