Training Events

The NSCP training provision aims to deliver high quality up to date safeguarding training that will enable participants to keep safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children at the centre of their work. All our training events are multi-agency, so are attended by delegates from a variety of organisations, offering a great opportunity to meet partners and discuss safeguarding children issues and at the same time gaining an insight on how others work to safeguard children. Our aim is to complement single agency safeguarding children training.  

The  Annual Training Programme [PDF] is produced once at the beginning of the training year as a reference document and starting point. The full list of courses is available below and regularly updated throughout the year as new courses are added. We offer a range of learning opportunities, including face to face/virtual training courses, seminars, and e learning.
