The Barnet Safeguarding Children Partnership

Training programme

If a child is in immediate danger please call 999

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, through the year so please do check back here regularly. 

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.  Training should be refreshed every three years in line with your organisation's policies and procedures. 

Please find an overview of the 2023/24 programme here

How to book on a course

We are pleased to produce the 2023/24 multi-agency workforce development pgramme open to all LB of Barnet staff and external multi agency partners from other organisations.  Training can be booked via the Council wide Learning Management System, The POD.   To view and book on courses please create an account on the system. 

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. A number of our programmes are linked to learning from serious safgeuarding incidents either locally or nationally. For example, incidents of neglect and domestic abuse remain prevalent within the national safeguarding system affecting children for which long term harm upon them is likely. Going further, we have introduced programmes tackling Adultification of children and we have programmes designed to raise awareness and understanding of identifying , assessing and intervention planning for children affected by sexual abuse. 

Training is offered to staff and volunteers who deal with children, young people and/or families within Barnet.

As a helpful overview of the current multi-agency workforce development programme, ahead of your registration on The POD.
