How to apply for training


There is no charge to attend any LSCB training courses.


Applying for a course

Practitioners who work with children and young people can apply for LSCB training courses via the LSCB Online Booking Form.


Please note that Education Staff wishing to apply for the Working Together to Safeguard Children and Young People Part 1 and Part 2 should still apply directly to the Education and Early Start Safeguarding Team (0113 3951211).


Receipt of forms / allocation of places

On receipt of an application, an individual will be allocated a place, if one is available. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.


Confirmation of a training place

Confirmation of training places will be sent out to all participants by email approximately three weeks before the course is due to run. Your confirmation will include details of the course time and venue and course materials (if applicable for your course). Details about the venue (including directions) can be found here. If you haven’t been allocated a place you will also be notified of this approximately three weeks prior to the course. Please do not attend unless you have received confirmation of your place (you may be required to show this on the day of the course).


Cancellation of a training place

If you wish to cancel a place you have applied for or are unable to attend due to illness / emergency situation, you must cancel by emailing as soon as possible.  If the cancellation is last minute please call on 0113 395 0297.


Waiting Lists

Waiting lists are held for all courses where applicable, and people will be contacted if a place becomes available. Unfortunately due to high numbers waiting lists cannot be automatically carried forward to the next course, and if they have been unsuccessful people are encouraged to reapply for a different date.
