Warrington Safeguarding Partnership is exploring a dynamic training offer that reflects the learning needs identified each year

Warrington Safeguarding Partnership training strategy sets out our vision for safeguarding children training until 2023. It will set out the priorities for staff development and link to both multi-agency training and single agency training available. It will be informed by WSP priorities, responsibilities under 1989, 2004 Children Act, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 and competency requirements. WSP will seek assurance from agencies that they are providing and monitoring effective learning and development opportunities around safeguarding children.

We will post training information about upcoming training on the online booking system.
