WSCB Multi-agency Training Information


The WSCB Multi-agency Training Programme is being extended all the time and contains options for attending face to face courses and completing learning online.

For all WSCB e-learning and face to face training CLICK HERE. If you already have an account you can log in and open requested learning tab. If you do not have an account click on register and follow the instructions.

Before you apply for a place on any of the courses please discuss with your manager or, Designated Safeguarding Lead. They will check that the course you are applying for is appropriate for your role and that you have fulfilled any pre-requisites.


Allocation of 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

Please note

There is a charge to attend most courses for non contributing agencies. Full details can be found when booking a place on a course.

The Cancellation period is now 10 days and any places cancelled with less than 10 days notice or if you do not turn up on the day will incur a change. Charges are £75 for a one day course, £125 for a two day course and £50 for a half day course.
