Working in an Inter-agency and Multi Agency way requires training that supports people to work effectively with practitioners from a wide range of agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Halton Safeguarding Children Board provides a range of courses for staff working with children, young people and families, or with adults who may be parents or carers.

Halton Safeguarding Children Board’s Multi-Agency Learning & Development Strategy outlines the Board’s strategic vision and priorities around training.

E-Learning Courses:

Safeguarding Children Induction Booklet

The Safeguarding Children Induction Booklet Safeguarding Children Induction Booklet has been designed to support new staff working with children and families. It should be used as part of all staff inductions, including volunteers, to ensure that basic information about safeguarding children in Halton is relayed to the practitioner at the earliest opportunity. Managers/Supervisors should discuss the booklet during supervision to support the practitioners understanding. Please note this booklet is not an e-learning tool and DOES NOT replace the need for Basic Awareness Safeguarding Training to be provided to all staff who work with children and families.
