Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Inter-Agency Training Programme
Multi-agency programme: themed programme offering a range of learning events for those staff who require a multi-agency learning events.
The programme is the result of a collaborative approach to provision of learning which has involved agencies and both LSCB's in each of the areas providing learning. The programme is centrally co-ordinated by the Children's Workforce Development Project.
Further details about the programme and other helpful resources and information are available on Children's Workforce Matters website.
Funded learning events and non attendance charge
Leicester City and Leicestershire & Rutland Safeguarding Children Boards have agreed that there will be a universal charge applied for nonattendance on the following learning events:
- LSCB Essential Awareness. http://www.childrensworkforcematters.org.uk/safeguarding-training
- LSCB Interagency Training Programme courses. http://www.childrensworkforcematters.org.uk/safeguarding-training
- LSCB Competency Framework Governance Training - Strengthening Practice Supporting Safer Organisations http://www.lcitylscb.org/safeguarding-learning-development-training/competency-framework-training-strategy/
- LSCB Trainers Network events (From April 2017) http://lrsb.org.uk/trainers-network
There is currently no charge to attend any of these courses and learning events, however there is a charge for nonattendance on these courses.
The underlying principle of charging is to maximise attendance and prevent delegate spaces being unused, where others may have had the opportunity to attend.
Since the principle of charging has been introduced there has been a significant decrease in non-attendance, and the process has allowed spaces on courses to be re-allocated via the waiting list, and maximised the learning opportunity for the workforce.
Any finances raised will be used to resource additional learning opportunities to sustain safeguarding learning across Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland.
