Why you should attend
This is a unique opportunity for all those involved in designing or delivering child protection training and continuing professional development, for various audiences, to update and refresh their knowledge on both child protection and on developments in relation to training methodologies and resources. You will have the opportunity to enhance your effectiveness, make links with other trainers and exchange learning from practice. You will also hear from an expert by experience of her survival in the face of sexual exploitation. We assist the learning of others better when confident, knowledgeable and creative and this requires space for our own learning and reflection and the opportunity to learn from others.
This year’s conference has a twin focus on dealing with disruptive change and on various manifestations of sexual violence against children and the implications of these for training.
Aims and objectives
- To consider major disruptors that challenge training on child protection and how they can be constructively embraced
- To explore different manifestations of sexual violence against children in the 21st century and the implications for training
- To discover the early lessons arising from changes to LSCB’s and multi-agency safeguarding arrangements
- To update on research, policy and practice developments affecting child protection training across the UK
- To support networking between trainers
- To celebrate excellence in training and announce the winner of the Child Protection Trainer of the Year Award 2019
The conference is relevant to those providing child protection training within any setting, for work with children, young people and their families.
This is a unique opportunity for all those involved in designing or delivering child protection training, for various audiences, to update and refresh their knowledge, build their effectiveness and network with other trainers.
