KBSP Inter-agency Training

KBSP Inter-agency Training aims to increase participants’ knowledge and skills in the field of safeguarding so that professionals can provide high quality services and improve outcomes for adults, children, young people and their families and carers. Inter-agency training complements single agency and professional training by focusing on effectively working together to meet the needs of adults, children and families.

Attending training in mixed groups has been proven to build relationships between different workplaces, which is important for multi-agency working. It also means that people can share their experiences and learn from each other. It is our objective to deliver quality training in a safe and reflective environment.

We review the training programme annually and revise it according to the feedback received from our partner agencies, course participants, identified learning from Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews, examples of best practice, and in line with changes to legislation and statutory guidance.

The training we currently offer is aimed at professionals that work with adults, children & young people, families and communities.

Please also see the resources and training providers on the Training Resources page.

 

Training Team Update

The KBSP team have been working towards developing a new training programme for April 2022 - March 2023, that reflects the 2019 merging of the Children, Adults and Communities Safeguarding Boards into the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership (KBSP).

You can find out more about KBSP and the previous merge in the Who We Are and What We Do pages.

The core training programme courses as shown below will be provided, as well as a selection of brand new specialist training courses.

Core programme courses:

  • Working Together: Our Shared Responsibility
  • Advanced Child Protection training for Safeguarding Leads and Specialist Practitioners
  • Child Protection for Managers

Specialist training courses:

  • Domestic Abuse
  • FGM Awareness
  • Mental Capacity Act
  • Safer Recruitment
  • Trauma and Adversity

Course dates for the new training year April 2022 - March 2023 are now available below in the relevant course title drop down menus.

All KBSP courses are Inter-agency courses. They are full day courses, currently delivered as two half day sessions one week apart to limit video call fatigue. Training groups are smaller than usual to allow for effective engagement and learning.

All training continues to take place online via Zoom video conference until further notice.

Returning to in person training will continue to be reviewed during this next training year April 2022 - March 2023. In the event that training returns to in-person, any Part Two dates will be rescheduled and merged with Part One to create a full day of training. Please be aware of this when booking your training for the new training year.

Complete an application form

Please complete the below application form in full. We cannot accept application forms that do not contain full invoicing details, even if you receive a funded place. See the Course Fees section for further information about funded places.

To submit your application, follow the instructions at the end of the application form. This process varies for different agencies so please read the instructions carefully.

Please copy in your line manager to all application submissions and in the email subject line include the applicant's name, title of the training course and the date of training.

E.g. Jo Bloggs - Working Together: Our Shared Responsibility - Tuesday 5th & 12th April 2022'.

Your place on the course is not guaranteed until you receive a course confirmation email and only three persons from any one agency can be accepted for each course date. This is because we allocate places on courses to ensure it is truly inter-agency. The confirmation email will be sent to the email address supplied on your application form so please ensure this is correct.

Please remember to submit the form in the original word document format - we cannot accept application forms in any other format.
