Multi-Agency Training

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 a 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.

We are trying to keep all details updated and current.

“If the session is virtual and you have not received a link please contact BHSCP within two days before the delivery date”.
