Leeds LSCB Child Protection Training
The LSCB provides a series of multi-agency safeguarding Learning and Development opportunities including two core courses (Level 1 and Level 2) and our Additional, Specialised courses (previously level 1), as well as city wide events such as briefing sessions and conferences.
Employers are responsible for ensuring that their staff are competent and confident in carrying out their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting children’s and young people’s welfare. It is the responsibility of employers to recognise that in order for staff to fulfil their duties in line with Working Together, they will have different training needs which are dependent on their degree of contact with children and young people and/or with adults who are parents or carers, their level of responsibility and independence of decision-making. (Working Together to Safeguard Children 2010)
Leeds LSCB inter agency child protection training is offered to staff and volunteers who come into contact with children, young people and/or families within Leeds.
The training is delivered at different levels
Level 1 for those staff whose work brings them into contact with children and families and adults who are parents or carers (groups 1-5 as defined in Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People 2010). This should be accessed in house; however the LSCB has a multi-agency course for those who are not able to do this. The course is a four hour session and will be held on average once a week during term time.
Level 2 for those staff who work regularly with children and families and adults who are parents or carers (groups 4 & 5 as defined in Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People 2010). This consists of a one day course which is run on a city wide basis and will take place on average once a week during term time.
Additional, Specialised courses for those staff working with children and families and adults who are parents or carers. These specialist training events are organised on a termly basis and include topics such as Child Protection Training for staff working with Disabled Children, Child Protection and the Links with Women Experiencing Violence from Men They Know, Recognising Children at Risk of Prostitution, Training for Trainers in Child Protection.
Conferences organised by the LSCB also offer an opportunity for specialist training. Examples of these include; Conference on the child protection issues regarding children placed within substitute families, Conference on Children and Young people with Sexually Harmful Behaviour.
