Partnership Children, Parents and Carers

All training recognises and actively promotes the need for working in partnership and engaging with children,  parents and carers. The training recognises the ‘family’ as a whole when safeguarding children and young people.


All training is informed and governed by equal opportunities and reflects the diversity and cultural needs of the individuals and organisations, within Cambridgeshire, that have responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children


All individuals who work with children, young people and/or their carers in the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors have access to the training

Interagency Collaboration

All training promotes the need for interagency working, bringing together people and organisations, to effectively safeguard children from harm.

Evidence Based

All training will be ‘evidence based’ containing the latest research, reflective practice and the ‘lessons learned’ both on a local and a national level

Evaluation / Impact

All training is responsive to identified local needs and will be subject to regular, rigorous review and evaluation; whilst looking at how practitioners have put into practice what they have learned to improve outcomes for the children, young people and families they work with.
