Safeguarding really is ‘Everyone’s Business’

Welcome to our Recorded Training. This year we have had to ‘do things differently’.

All of the virtual sessions are available to download and view at home or in the office, at a time to suit you.

We are keen to keep safeguarding children at the forefront of everyone’s mind and continue to raise awareness of the issues. We have worked with Safeguarding Partnerships and agencies across West Yorkshire to bring you these sessions.

On the following pages you will find a wide range of training and learning opportunities in different formats. There’s ‘something for everyone’ who has contact with children and families so take a look:

Safeguarding really is ‘Everyone’s Business’ we would like to thank everyone who has contributed.

All of the virtual training sessions and briefings offered during the week are free for partner agencies, voluntary organisations, schools and practitioners working with children and families across the Wakefield District.

Due to the volume of colleagues accessing our training, we are only able provide certificates for face to face training.  To evidence that you have viewed these training recordings, complete an evaluation form link and save.
