1 Merton Safeguarding Children Board (MSCB) April 2016 March 2017 Produced by the MSCB Training Team and Endorsed by the MSCB Learning and Development Sub-Committee

2 Merton Training Pathway Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015, Chapter 3, ( ) continues to enforce the functions of LSCBs under Regulation 5 1(a)(ii) in relation to: the training of persons who work with children or in services affecting the safety and welfare of children (pg59) the monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness of training, including multi-agency training, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. (Chapter 3.2, pg. 60). However, in the absence of any further Government guidance on training, the London Safeguarding Children Board adopted Competence Still Matters 2015 in respect of the training and development of staff and volunteers across London, with the view to enable them to effectively safeguard and promote the welfare of children Competence Still Matters groups audiences together based on their degree of contact with children and/or parents/carers and their levels of responsibility. There are eight groups which are: 1. Those who have occasional contact with children, young people and/or parents/carers. 2. Those in regular or in intensive but irregular contact with children, young people and/or parents/ carers. 3. Those who work predominantly with children, young people and/or parents/ carers. 4. Those who have particular specialist child protection responsibilities. 5. Professional advisers and designated leads for child protection. 6. Operational managers of services for children, young people and/or parents / carers. 7. Senior managers responsible for strategic management of services for children, young people and/or parents/carers. 8. Members of Local Safeguarding Children Boards. Using the following tables The following tables detail the eight staff groups and the minimum training requirements in respect of each group. Employers should use the tables to ensure that all relevant employees and volunteers receive timely, appropriate training whether provided in-house, by their LSCB or by other training providers. LSCBs should use the tables to inform the development of any local, multi-agency training programme. The tables can also be used when developing audit tools to measure the quantity and quality of single and multi-agency training provision within any borough. When using the tables to design single or multi-agency programmes or training events, the focus should be on the outcomes indicated against the content for each of the eight groups. When designing training programmes, employers and LSCBs should ensure that specific or specialist topics are covered (for example, impact of parental mental health, domestic violence, substance misuse, sexual exploitation). Training programmes should be continually revised to ensure the inclusion of ongoing lessons from research, Serious Case Reviews and government inquiry reports.

3 MERTON SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN BOARD TRAINING PROGRAMME Training Grid London Safeguarding Children Board has published the Competence Still Matters: Training framework for London. Competence Still Matters groups audiences together based on their degree of contact with children and their parents and level of responsibility.

Members of the workforce who work predominantly with children, young people and/or their parents/carers and who could potentially contribute to assessing planning, intervening and reviewing the needs of a child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns.
