Due to the current social distancing restrictions in place in light of COVID-19, the CSCP has worked with our experienced trainers to ensure that safeguarding training can still be made available to multi-agency partners. Although, there will be some changes for all delegates to note prior to booking:

Delegates need to apply to join the course.
— All sessions will be held virtually — please make sure you can access Microsoft Teams or Zoom (these will be the preferred platforms for safeguarding training).
— Some session will require you to review a handout pack which will be sent to you in advance with instructions.
— Be aware that no online platform is completely secure, so keep questions general, and avoid giving any information that could be used to identify a child or family.
— Always keep your speaker on mute if you’re not speaking to reduce background noise.
— Please do not use any other devices while you’re taking part in the conference.
— Please take note of the allocated break and lunch times set during the training and behave as if you were in a ‘real’ training room.

Failure of any of the above will result in the delegate not receiving their certificate of accreditation.
