Scope of training

This was developed initially in response to a request from Essex Safeguarding Children Board for training which met the aims outlined above.

It is intended to augment the core Safeguarding Children training, which should be undertaken by all frontline staff and volunteers at an appropriate level, and should not be regarded as a replacement for that core training.

It is recommended that all participants should have undertaken at least Level 1 Safeguarding Children training before they attend this session.
