The Barnet Safeguarding Children Partnership

Training programme

If a child is in immediate danger please call 999

The BSCP provides a series of multi-agency safeguarding learning and development opportunities including core courses and our additional specialised courses, as well as briefing sessions and conferences. Training is offered to staff and volunteers who come into contact with children, young people and/or families within Barnet.

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 updated every three years in line with your own organisation's policies and procedures. A refresher briefing is provided by the BSCP to help professionals achieve this.

Health staff who access Level 1 and 2 training in-house have received the equivalent to Introduction to Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People. Therefore Health staff looking for Level 3 training need to access the BSCP Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People.
