Learning with toy blocks

The LSCBs have a responsibility to provide multi-agency safeguarding training and the two local boards (for Dorset and Bournemouth/Poole) have agreed a new joined up approach which commenced in April 2016. Under this approach training is centrally coordinated and bookable via one on-line booking system. The Pan-Dorset LSCBs Training Strategy sets this out.

On this page you can find information about multi-agency safeguarding children (level 3) training opportunities which can be accessed by everyone working with children and young people in Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole.

Whether you come from a small nursery or childminding setting to a large organisation there will be training relevant to your needs. We encourage a mix of statutory, voluntary and independent workers on each course to enable participants to gain an understanding of safeguarding in other services and to form networks for future working. Multi-agency training enables staff to work effectively both within their own agency and across organisational boundaries.

The training programme offered by the LSCBs covers the two day Safeguarding Children course and one day follow up, Serious Case Review Workshops, Child Sexual Exploitation and courses on neglect, emotional abuse and sexually harmful behaviour. Training is also offered on Safer Recruitment, Managing Allegations, Supervising to Safeguard and Working with Resistant Families.

The LSCBs use CPD on-line as the central booking system. All courses have the prefix LSCB and display the logos of both LSCBs to make them easily identifiable.  Everyone should book via this system with the exception of Dorset schools and early years settings who should book via Dorset Nexus.
