Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Training Strategy Briefing Session 07.02.2017
Tuesday, 7 February 2017 from 10:00 to 15:30 (GMT)
In April 2014 Leicester City and Leicestershire & Rutland LSCB revised the Children’s Safeguarding Learning, Development and Training Strategy. The strategy supports the provision of high quality and meaningful safeguarding learning and training to those individuals and organisations who work with children and families in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland.
By using a competency based approach, the strategy will support organisations and practitioners to undertake their safeguarding roles and responsibilities in a confident, competent and committed manner, with a focus on looking at the links between learning and training, and how this learning is transferred into practice and 'improved outcomes for children.'
The strategy has a 3 year implementation period with the expectation that all of the Childrens Workforce are working fully within the strategy by March 31st 2017.
Briefing sessions will support organisational leads, managers and those involved in safeguarding training and learning.
