Multi-Agency Training

You can view our full Multi-agency Training Programme (2021-2022) here.(currently under construction)


The Safeguarding Children Partnership in Brighton and Hove has an expectation that all staff working in either statutory or voluntary agencies settings will undertake safeguarding training in some form.

There is an requirement for all statutory agency staff who are new to role, undertake the Multi-Agency – Child Protection – Core Training sessions.

It is accepted that statutory partners all have agreed protocols for their staff, to obtain the appropriate level of training,(including in-house refreshers when required). Staff can enhance their CPD and knowledge by attending any of the more advanced training offers provided by the BHSCP.

There is an expectation from the Safeguarding Partnership that all voluntary agencies have undertaken some form of safeguarding training, and would suggest that “Safeguarding Children” an e-learning module available via the Learning Gateway is an accepted method of obtaining this.

Please be aware that we are currently NOT undertaking any face to face training. 

All offers are currently virtual.

Please check all details via the Learning Gateway.

We are trying to keep all details updated and current.
