TRAINING COURSES 2020/21
In line with the DSCP Restoration Plan, work has been undertaken to relaunch the DSCP Training Programme via a virtual training platform. This means that all face to face training has been cancelled and replaced by either virtual training platforms or narrated slideshows.
The DSCP is pleased to announce the launch of the following training courses:

As part of our commitment to continuous learning and improvement, Durham Safeguarding Children Partnership are hosting a Safeguarding Awareness Week, in partnership with colleagues from across County Durham. Safeguarding Week 2021 will promote and raise awareness on a different safeguarding theme and is a learning and engagement opportunity for all practitioners to explore cases in a facilitative and reflective discussion.
Additional Awareness Events
Openclasp Theatre – Coercive Controlling Behaviour – Awareness sessions and Workshops – May and June 2021
GRT Awareness Sessions (Virtual) – April/July/October
Further courses will be launched as soon as they become available – watch this space.
Our Training Programme is underpinned by the DSCP Training Strategy and is designed to support commissioners and practitioners to embed good practices in relation to the safeguarding of children and young people in County Durham. Download a copy of the Training Strategy.
Confirmations will be issued within 2 weeks prior to the Training course and will contain an MS Teams link to enable you to access the session along with any pre-reading material/pre-learning requirements. You will also receive a reminder email 2 weeks prior to your confirmed course running.
Please note training now runs on a first come first served basis.
Private Organisations will be charged £30 per course per person. There is an expectation that participants commit to complete the full course. A certificate of attendance is only issued once pre-learning and evaluation have been completed and submitted. If these haven’t been completed within 8 weeks of the course date you will be charged a non-completion fee of £10.
Please note there is a late cancellation fee of £5 if a course is cancelled within 5 working days of it running.
