Safeguarding Children & Young People: 6 Reasons to Refresh your Training Today

1. Resources changes

Resource changes in our current economic climate often mean that a reduced staff team have to do more with less. They need extra support in staying clear, confident and focused.

2. Out of date

Don’t leave it before it’s too late: Many people responsible for safeguarding think they are up to date and find out after a serious incident that they are not. As well as harming a precious young life, complacency also harms your staff morale and your organisation or business.

3. New staff

When you have new staff, you/your new team need training or a refresher together so that everyone is singing from the same song sheet.  Everything that goes on in your team affects how safe the children in your care are: attitudes, self-esteem, ownership, teamwork all come into play. A coherent approach gives each team member greater support and the increased clarity saves time, effort and money in the long run.

4. Changes in best practice

On-going changes in Best Practice – keeping up to date with the collective wisdom of the safeguarding sector boosts everyone’s confidence.

5. Develop your skills

Take it to the next level and make an even bigger difference: develop your skills to an advanced level, so you can make a powerful and positive difference to young people, your team and your clients. Safeguarding is about so much more than a set of practices about keeping children safe. At a deeper level, it’s also about attitudes and relationships that have the power to positively impact families and our wider society.

6. Young lives are precious

The main reason: young lives are precious Every interaction counts. The encouragement and support you give a child or young person could affect their lives forever.
