The Knowsley Safeguarding Children Partnership is committed to ensuring that a comprehensive and effective training programme is available to staff working with children, young people and families within the Knowsley area.

The KSCP develops its annual training programme based on strategic priorities identified within the business plan, needs analysis and lessons learnt via case reviews.

For 2019/21 there are a number of agreed strategic priorities which are set out in the Business Plan (2020 to 2022);

  1. Safeguarding and protecting children from domestic abuse
  2. Safeguarding and protecting children from neglect
  3. Safeguarding and protecting children from child exploitation
  4. Safeguarding and protecting the mental well-being of children.

The training programme will feature the key themes in bold and bespoke, targeted training will be on offer to targeted cohorts of staff.

The aim of the training programme is to increase participants knowledge and skills in the field of safeguarding children. This is intended to improve working relationships between agencies, to promote high quality service provision and better outcomes for children.
