Which Training Course is right for me?
The level of training you need depends on your role and the level of contact you have with children and families. All LSCB Training and workforce development activities are targeted at different groups of people dependent on their safeguarding roles and responsibilities.
These groups are explained below:
Group A - Staff & volunteers with little face to face contact with children, young people & parents & carers. Includes all staff involved with information concerning children, young people & families e.g. Admin Staff
Group B - ALL those in regular contact with children, young people and adults who are parents/carers in their day to day work, who may be in a position to identify concerns about maltreatment, including those that may arise from the use of the Early Help Assessment Tool (EHAT).
Group C - Those who work regularly with children, young people and adults who are parents/carers. Including those with particular responsibility for safeguarding children e.g. Designated Child Protection Officers & managers who supervise staff and volunteers & those who attend Case Conferences & Core Groups regularly. (This group work extensively within a multi-agency context and often have operational responsibility for the work of others.)
Group D - Those with a particular responsibility for safeguarding children in their job roles & those who have strategic responsibility for commissioning and providing services to children, young people and adults who are parents/carers, including members of Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board.

Evaluating Effectiveness and the Impact of Training
The LSCB Training Strategy 2017/18 provides a framework for safeguarding training in Liverpool to ensure that staff and volunteers working with children, young people and their families are competent and confident to carry out their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
The LSCB has a responsibility to ensure that both single and inter-agency learning and improvement opportunities are delivered to a consistently high standard, and that a process exists for evaluating the effectiveness and impact of any learning and improvement activity.
Evaluating the impact and effectiveness of training and other learning and improvement activity is complex and challenging. This process relies on the commitment of participants to engage in the evaluation process and give honest and constructive feedback.
All participants attending LSCB training sessions will be expected to contribute to the evaluation process and may be asked complete evaluation questionnaires before, during and after any training sessions attended.
Where agencies refuse to participate in the evaluation process, the LSCB reserve the right to refuse attendance at future training.
