Awareness raising for childminders

Although the CPC focus is on inter-agency training, it is recognised this can be difficult to attend as Childminders.  For this reason we offer sessions which are based around the Introduction to Child Protection and GIRFEC course.  These sessions are delivered in the evening or on a Saturday morning to try and fit around Childminders working week.

Please also see the full Inter-Agency Child Protection Training Programme for further training opportunities.
