Inter-Agency Child Protection Training
CPC Training Strategy image
Fife Child Protection Committee through its Workforce Development Group has an overview of single agency child protection training and considers the implicatons for inter-agency training. An Inter Agency Child Protection Training Programme is in place and this is continually reviewed to ensure training is relevant, effective and consistent.
The Fife Inter Agency Child Proteciton Training programme should be read in conjunction with the Scottish Government National Framework for Child Protection Learning and Development in Scotland 2012 which outlines the competencies/knowledge/skills required in the three workforce categories referred to in this calendar. In addition single agency training calendars should be considered by applicants. It is recognised that applicants’ needs will vary and as such they will wish to consider training opportunities outwith the workforce category that they may sit in. For example applicants from the General Contact Workforce can take up training in the Specific Contact Workforce list and vice versa.
You will find further information on the workforce categories in the Inter Agency GIRFEC and Child Protection Training Programme or the Training Strateg, which can both be accessed at the links below.
Ideally all new employees in any service/agency should, as part of their initial induction, receive basic awareness and understanding in terms of child protection training. Existing employees should have access to single agency child protection training. Generally services and agencies are responsible for induction and basic training and Fife Child Protection Committee can assist with guidance on this matter. Fife Child Protection Committee recognises that not all services and agencies may have this capacity and to complement any existing single agency arrangements, or where there are no arrangements, Fife Child Protection Committee delivers a basic awareness raising course. In addition e-learning courses below are available for all contact workforce groups. For further details see the page on e-learning.
Fife CPC Inter Agency Child Protection Training is delivered free of charge to all applicants. Please ensure that you have the approval of your line manager to attend prior to submitting your application. Courses are held in the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, Forth Avenue, Kirkcaldy.
