Courses:

Working Together: Promoting Wellbeing and Keeping Children Safe +

Working Together is at the heart of good child protection and safeguarding practice.

This course, based around the statutory guidance, ‘Working together to Safeguard Children’ (2018) explores how organisations and individuals can better work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. It is primarily aimed at staff who are new to working with Children and Families in Sheffield or practitioners who have recently taken on a safeguarding remit.

The course provides staff with an understanding of their responsibilities, how to access support for children and families, the child protection process, key legislation and guidance and will look at what can be learned from practice in Sheffield. It is also an opportunity for staff to become familiar with the roles of people from other agencies who attend the training and share experiences and perspectives that will aid future working.

Staff should have completed their own agency Basic/Introduction to Safeguarding Children face to face training or the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership Online E-learning Safeguarding Children Level 3.

All course dates are now full for this academic year 2021-2022.  Further dates for academic year 2022-2023 will be available from June 2022.  If you have any queries please contact: Tel: 0114 2734530 or E-mail: safeguardingchildrentraining@sheffield.gov.uk  

Conference and Core Groups +

This course will help practitioners develop a clearer understanding of the process of Initial Child Protection Conferences, Core Groups and Review Conferences. It explains local policy and practice including consideration of core values and incorporating Signs of Safety.

Staff should have completed their own agency Basic/Introduction to Safeguarding Children face to face training or the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership Online E-learning ‘Level 3 Safeguarding’ and the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Children Working Together: Promoting Well-being and Keeping Children Safe course before applying for this course.  This course is aimed primarily at staff who are new to working with children and families or who have more recently taken on a safeguarding remit and anticipate that they may become involved in child protection conferences or are likely to be members of a core group.

Safeguarding Adults and Children +

This half-day course has been developed jointly by the Safeguarding Adults and Safeguarding Children services and it designed for practitioners in both Adult and  Children’s Services. It raises awareness of safeguarding issues for both adults and children at risk and considers how practitioners in Adults and Children’s services might work more effectively together.

Increasingly practitioners across both adults and children’s services are being encouraged to develop family-based approaches to working with vulnerability and need and this course provides an excellent opportunity to begin to explore the implications of this for practice.

Staff should have completed their own agency Basic Safeguarding Children or Adults face to face training or the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership Online E-learning, Safeguarding Children Level 3 training, before applying for this specialist course.

All course dates are now full for this academic year 2021-2022.  Further dates for academic year 2022-2023 will be available from June 2022.  If you have any queries please contact: Tel: 0114 2734530 or E-mail: safeguardingchildrentraining@sheffield.gov.uk  

Working with Resistance and Hostility in Families +

Different families respond to professionals in different ways. From time to time all agencies will come into contact with families who deflect attention from improving outcomes for their child or adult at risk, or who are more obviously reluctant, resistant or hostile toward agency approaches.

This course emphasises practical approaches to support practitioners to engage families and to offer appropriate challenge where required.

Prior to attendance attendees should:

  • complete a basic introduction to safeguarding course either in their own agency or the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership e-learning, Level 3 Safeguarding Children via the Safeguarding Sheffield Children Website here and clicking on the Self-Register link.

  •  attend an Introduction to Safeguarding Adults course (advisable) where possible either in their own agency or via the Sheffield Adult Safeguarding Partnership here

  •  have attended or booked onto a Trauma Informed Practice workshop here to supplement this course.  Attendance can be before or after this training.

Applications are welcome from ALL practitioners working with children and families in Sheffield. The course is free to all staff working for Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership partner agencies or other not for profit organisations.

Graded Care Profile 2 Training +

1 day training to gain licence for using the Graded Care Profile Tool from the NSPCC.

What is the GCP2

The GCP2 is a practical tool which supports practitioners in measuring the quality of care delivered to an individual child from an individual carer or carers over a short window of time and is designed to give a representative overview of the current level of care. The grades are based on observations and good quality evidence gathered during this window. The GCP2 reviews "what it's like" for the child not "why it's happening". It helps professionals to be clear about what the basic needs of a child are, and to what degree they are being met. This allows practitioners to make reasoned and explicit judgements in relation to neglect.
