Voluntary, Community & Faith Sector Safeguarding Children Training
Voluntary, Community & Faith Sector staff training
All staff - paid workers and volunteers - working with children and young people in Sheffield are able to access the free SSCB e-learning course: Awareness of Child Abuse and Neglect (Core) Training.
The SSCB also provides an ‘off the shelf’ Safeguarding Children Introductory Course for practitioners working in the voluntary/community/faith sector. This can be delivered in-house by voluntary/community/faith sector staff.
This course provides practitioners with an understanding of the responsibilities under key pieces of legislation and associated guidance, and provides the background and context to safeguarding procedures in Sheffield.
Following the above training, practitioners are also welcome to attend any multi-agency training events including courses, conferences and lunchtime seminars – details of these are available on the SSCB multi-agency training page.
