Multi-Agency Training

Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership

Multi-agency training helps to enable staff who safeguard children to work effectively within their own agency and across organisations, building mutually respectful and trusting relationships.

Our training reflects new learning and recommendations from Local Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews, Serious Case Reviews, Audits, Evaluation Reports, changes in legislation and  local and national best practice. This ensures that Birmingham safeguarding practitioners are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to safeguard children and young people.
