Welcome to Learning, Development and Training
Please note that all face to face training dates planned until April 2022 have moved to online courses. Places can be booked using the 'book training' link. Thank you for your understanding.
Our Safeguarding Children Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (OSCP) offers a range of training opportunities including face to face training, e-learning and conferences.
More information about these opportunities can be found using the links on the left. Please be aware that Our Safeguarding Children Partnership is not responsible for the content or security of external links.
The OSCP Training Strategy and underpinning ethos form a most important focus within the multi-agency partnership. The knowledge, understanding and skills of staff in child safeguarding is critical and is developed through a true ‘learning culture’.
We are often asked if the training offered by OSCP is 'Level 3'. The levels referred to in the Training Strategy relate specifically to those described in the Safeguarding Children and Young People: Roles and Competencies for Healthcare Staff Intercollegiate Framework. For colleagues working in other settings such as schools, colleges or social care levels are no longer used. However the training offered is described as lntercollegiate Framework Level 3. In the information about each course we try to identify the roles or settings for which the training would be most relevant.
If your professional role requires you to have Level 3 or equivalent training, we recommend that you undertake the Working Together to Safeguard Children course, plus the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) day if you are a DSL or deputy DSL in an education or early years setting. After this when you need to update your training you could attend either the half day Working Together Refresher course or any of our other courses to broaden your understanding of safeguarding.
The training strategy promotes the availability of up-to-date learning opportunities, delivered in a stimulating and thought-provoking way by skilled practitioners. Supported by the work of the OSCP Learning Group, the programme is constantly reviewed, developed and updated in line with learning gained from national and local reviews.
Safeguarding Induction Information is available to be shared with staff and volunteers. This updated information replaces the previous 'Level 1 Safeguarding Leaflet'
