Training for Practitioners

We provide multi-agency training offering opportunities for workers from different agencies to learn together, share good practice and improve how everyone works together.

Training Programme

View our safeguarding training matrix (PDF 158Kb) for more information on what training and awareness courses different roles in safeguarding need to do. 

The SSCP training programme runs from September to July each year. Visit SLA Online for more information.

You will need to set up a username and password. Once done, you should use this to book all multi-agency courses.

Read the following leaflet: how to book onto Safeguarding Children courses via SLA Online (Word 22Kb).

Please note that places are not allocated on a first come, first served basis. Courses are short-listed and places are allocated to achieve a multi-agency representation. All participants must complete a basic awareness course – either multi-agency or from their own organisation – before attending a multi-agency topic based workshop.


Delegates who work for those agencies who do not contribute financially to the SSCP are charged to attend. The SSCP charges all delegates for non-attendance if places are not cancelled in writing by email, 3 working days before the course date. For more information, read the charging policy FAQs (PDF 130Kb).
