Introduction to the LSCP Training Programme, Terms & Conditions, and Venues

Introduction to the LSCP Training Programme

Welcome to the Lewisham Safeguarding Children Partnership (LSCP) training programme 2019- 2020.  

This training supplements the single agency training provided by your organisation and aims to provide all professionals who work with Lewisham’s children and young people a variety of skills and knowledge in safeguarding practice to keep those who are vulnerable safe.

LSCP courses provide an opportunity to network, share information and ideas, and learn about the range of services available in Lewisham. Multi-agency training also facilitates a shared understanding and common language within agencies to better safeguard children and young people in the borough. It is crucial that staff are supported to attend single and multi-agency training as well as have a system in place to monitor how the knowledge and skills gained from training are transferred in everyday practice.

Individual agencies and employers are responsible for ensuring that their staff are competent and confident in carrying out their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and in order to fulfil their safeguarding duties as identified in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.

The LSCP may provide additional training to what is listed in response to local or national developments.  We recommend you review the training programme regularly and access the LSCP Safeguarding Briefings via our website.
