Training & Development

Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership (BSCP), provide safeguarding learning and development opportunities for professionals, working with children, young people and families in Birmingham.

Purpose of Multi Agency Training
Multi-agency training enables professionals to work effectively both within their own agency and across organisational boundaries. Training people together can make a significant contribution to building mutually respectful and trusting relationships, which forms the foundation of partnership working. Our training reflects new learning and recommendations from Serious Case Reviews, Local Child Safeguarding Practice Review, Audits, Evaluation Reports and changes in legislation, guidance and best practice both nationally and locally. This ensures that Birmingham safeguarding professionals are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to safeguard children and young people.

BSCP training aims to:

  • Improve communication between professionals and others working with children, young people and families
  •  Develop a shared understanding of roles and responsibilities
  • Contribute to whatever actions are needed to safeguard and promote the child’s welfare
  • Improve assessment, analysis and decision making
  • Improve effective working together based on sound working relationships.
