Training and Resources Hub

Multi-agency training is co-developed with partners and adults with lived experience to help practitioners, care providers and volunteers to understand their roles, responsibilities and safeguarding procedures; which creates a shared understanding of assessment and decision making practices. Training can be face to face, online or a combination of both.

The learning from practice resources look at the outcomes from a range of SARs, reviews and audits both locally and nationally, and how we can use these valuable lessons to improve our practice.

The training resources help us to ensure we promote that safeguarding is everyone’s business.

7-Minute Briefings

Seven-minute briefings are based on a technique borrowed from the FBI. It is based on research, which suggests that seven minutes is an ideal time span to concentrate and learn. Learning for seven minutes is manageable in most services, and learning is more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.

There are increasing pressure on services, which can make it difficult to release staff to attend training, as well as the need to keep learning and developing to maintain a skilled workforce, and short, team-based learning events might be a helpful way to support learning. What is a 7 Minute Briefing?

The content of the briefings will be a mixture of new information (such as learning from Serious Case Reviews) or a reminder/repeat of basic information with challenge to think about the application to practice in the team. The briefings can be downloaded below.
