BSCB Training and Conference Team

Bristol Safeguarding Children Board is committed to providing a comprehensive and effective training programme to all agencies within Bristol.

The distinctive character of inter-agency child protection training is a result of a complex web of individual, professional and organisational differences and the challenging nature of child protection.

Training people together can make a significant contribution to building mutually respectful and trusting relationships, which form the foundation of any partnership working; therefore the process and experience of the courses are as important as the content.

Research has shown (Carpenter et al, 2009, The Organisation, Outcomes and Costs of Inter-Agency safeguarding Training to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. London: DCSF) that multiagency training in particular is useful and valued by professionals in developing a shared understanding of child protection and decision making.

Inter-agency Training Programme 2017 to 2018

The BSCB Inter-agency Training Programme aims to increase participants’ knowledge and skills in the field of child protection and safeguarding in order to provide high quality services and improve outcomes for children, young people and their families and carers.

It's our objective to deliver quality training in a safe and reflective environment, and to offer opportunities to all participants to support their own professional development.
