This one day programme builds on single agency safeguarding training delivered at level two, with a specific focus on how to work effectively together across organisational boundaries in order to safeguard children from harm.
Participants will be given the opportunity to:
- Consolidate their understanding of what constitutes significant harm and how to recognise that a child is being abused.
- Understand how parenting capacity can impact on the child’s health and development.
- Consider the factors that might affect recognition of harm particularly when working with resistance, for example, disguised compliance.
- Consider how to work together to facilitate effective information sharing in order to analyse and understand potential risk of harm including where children are at risk of child sexual exploitation.
- Understand the potential barriers to communication and the importance of developing effective inter-agency relationships.
- Clarify roles and responsibilities across networks including that of the Children’s Safeguarding Partnerships.
- Understand the importance of professional challenge within a safe system and how work with professional differences.
