What training is right for me?
The WSCB has determined that all those working with children/young people and/or parents/carers must access training in child protection and safeguarding. This should include training as part of their agency induction and refresher training at least every three years. For those members of the workforce who predominantly work with; children/young people and/or parent/carers, or who have specialist responsibilities or designated responsibility for child protection, or are operational managers involved in child protection should be both single agency and inter-agency in the above training. The current training programme seeks to meet this need and incorporates the suggested training content for different levels.
For information on the levels of training and to find out what training courses are relevant to your job role, skills and competencies please see the flowchart For up to date guidance on Child Protection and Safeguarding training for school staff click here.

Allocation of training places
Priority will be given to staff from agencies and organisations that contribute to the WSCB and we aim to ensure all courses have appropriate multi-agency representation.
Once you have applied for a place we will contact you to confirm your place on the course. This process is to ensure that the right people are on the right course pre-requisites have been fulfilled.
If you are not allocated a place it is likely to be for one of the following reasons:
- you have already completed the course and do not need to repeat it
- you need to complete an update course
- the course is not appropriate for your role
- the agency allocation is full for the course
There is a charge to attend most courses for non contributing agencies. Full details can be found when booking a place on a course.
Any delegate failing to attend a course or cancelling a place without 10 working days notice will incur the following charges:
£75 for a one day course and £50 for a half day course.
