Training with HSCB

Safeguarding Training

It is everyone’s responsibility to keep children safe.

Multi-agency training is a priority for the Safeguarding Partners. It helps to ensure that practitioners and their managers are equipped with the right knowledge and experience to carry out their duties and responsibilities.

Currently HSCB is unable to offer its introductory E-Learning  safeguarding training but does offer a multi-agency training programme.

Here you will find the upcoming safeguarding children training sessions offered free of charge by the London Safeguarding Children Partnership  London Safeguarding Children Partnership Training

The HSCB Pathway should assist you in identifying the appropriate level of child protection training for your role here.

In Harrow, the Partnership provides HSCB Introduction and HSCB Advanced training for Safeguarding Leads to attend. Once this training has been undertaken Safeguarding Leads can keep up to date through a range of safeguarding training and learning events.

We do not require Safeguarding Leads to repeat the HSCB Introduction and HSCB Advanced courses unless they have been out of this role or have become out of touch.

The additional training/learning events are provided to help those in key safeguarding roles across the Partnership keep up to date and refresh their knowledge of safeguarding practice and developments, the services available and learning from audits and reviews.  This was agreed by the Partnership as being a more relevant and effective way of equip staff to undertake their roles and keep them up to date and provides more in-depth information and guidance.

The voluntary sector also provides safeguarding training and for further information contact Voluntary Action Harrow.

Please note that any training undertaken via the HSCB must  be booked with the agreement of your line manager.
