Reading Safeguarding Training

"There should be a culture of continuous learning and improvement across the organisations that work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, identifying opportunities to draw on what works and promote good practice", Working Together (2015)

Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility so audiences for training are vast and diverse. This includes the whole of the children’s and young people’s workforce and those working with adults who are parents or carers. It includes paid staff and volunteers working in the statutory, voluntary, community and independent sectors.

There is a broad variety of safeguarding training available across Reading, details of which can be found below:
