Training calendar

OLSCB offers a programme of multi agency safeguarding training for professionals working with children, young people, vulnerable adults and their families.      

Our aim is to develop:

  • A shared understanding of the tasks, processes, principles, roles and responsibilities outlined in national guidance and local arrangements for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare
  • More effective and integrated services at both the strategic and individual case level
  • Improved communication and information sharing between professionals, including a common understanding of key terms, definitions and thresholds for action
  • Effective working relationships, including an ability to work in multidisciplinary groups or teams
  • Sound child focused assessments and decision making; and
  • Learning from Serious Case Reviews (SCRs) and reviews of child deaths
