Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board and Wolverhampton Safeguarding Adults Board (together known as Wolverhampton Safeguarding Boards) have a joint Learning and Development committee which is responsible for:

  1. producing and monitoring the impact of the Wolverhampton Safeguarding Boards Learning and Improvement Framework
  2. assuring the Boards that each organisation or sector delivers relevant 'single agency' training to its staff (employees and volunteers) proportionate to the role they have in meeting the needs of children, young people and their families.
  3. making provision for and overseeing a relevant programme of high quality multi-agency training in response to identified need for all Wolverhampton Safeguarding partner agencies / sectors that makes a difference to the safety of children and young people, and adults with care and support needs in the city.

Employees and volunteers will have access to the Guest Area for one month to complete as many of the modules as they have time to do.

A certificate is available for download on completion of each module which can be shown to a manager / person in charge and added to your training record.

Attending training is an essential part of your continuing professional development. Wolverhampton Safeguarding Boards value and encourage the participation of everyone in the range of single and multi-agency training opportunities it provides as this has been shown to improve multi-agency working.

In order to get the most out of a training event we ask that you consider your own responsibilities with regard to attending and assisting in evaluating the training.

Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully when registering for a course. Registration does not guarantee a place on a course as sometimes it is necessary to select participants to ensure a good multi-agency mix of delegates.
