Everyone shares a responsibility for safeguarding, protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults irrespective of individual roles.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Adults and Children Boards continues to provide a programme of high quality courses, providing an excellent opportunity to learn together with the overall aim that working together effectively leads to better improved outcomes for children, young people and adults by:
- A shared understanding of the principles, roles and responsibilities outlined in national guidance and local arrangements for safeguarding children, young people and adults.
- More effective and integrated services at both the strategic and individual case level;
- Improved communication and information sharing between professionals, including a common understanding of key terms, definitions and thresholds for action;
- Effective working relationships, including an ability to work in multi-disciplinary groups or teams;
- Learning from both local and national case review processes.
Training provided by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Board is governed by the following inter-agency principles:
- Training is informed and governed by equal opportunities and reflects the diversity of the Cambridgeshire community.
- The training promotes and recognises the need for children and families to participate in the safeguarding process.
- Training promotes the need for inter-agency working to effectively safeguard children and adults from harm.
- All individuals who work with children, young people or adults at risk in the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors have access to the training.
- Training is responsive to local needs and is subject to regular evaluation and review.
What is Adult Safeguarding Partnership Board Training?
Adult Safeguarding Partnership Board Training……
- Is multi-agency safeguarding adults at risk training
- Uses multi-agency safeguarding case studies / exercises
- Endorses single agency in house adult at risk safeguarding training to ensure that the training is valid/robust/up to date
- Facilitates: workshops / training sessions / conferences
- Provides leaflets / briefings / toolbox slides / limited training slides that can / should be used in single agency training
- Is NOT a replacement for single agency training
- Does NOT provide single agency training specific to individual organisations or roles
Adult Safeguarding Partnership Board Training……
Does not provide bespoke training for certain roles…
Example (1) training would not be provided for Safeguarding Leads on how to be a Safeguarding Lead within a care setting– this is agency specific and should be provided by either the care provider or its commissioner.
Example (2) an introduction to safeguarding adults at risk for Adult Social Care workers – this is agency specific and should be provided by Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.
Does not provide training focused on one role or agency ….
Example (1) a workshop on the ‘lived experience of the adult’ for Police workers that includes Police responsibilities, policies and procedures and Police exercises / resources– this is agency specific and should be provided by the Police NOT ASPB.
Does not provide specific single agency training to ensure that specific roles are able to continue to practice within a particular setting …
Example (1) health professionals completing workshops to be compliant with their own organisation and the quality Care Commission and expecting to get priority places to ensure their compliance – the health sector provide their own single agency training which meets CQC requirements and the ASPB is NOT responsible for providing training for health staff to remain compliant
Does not provide training for an agency within their organisational setting..
Example (1) for the ASPB to provide a one day training session on Hoarding at a team away day for a Housing Provider – the ASPB is a multi-agency training provider and would not undertake bespoke training for one sole organisation.
