Big plans for the young people of our Borough

Safeguarding Training

A key priority for SLSCB is to have a workforce that is competent and appropriately skilled to carry out their duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.

Employers are responsible for ensuring that their staff are competent to carry out their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and creating an environment where staff feel able to raise concerns and feel supported in their safeguarding role.

SLSCB therefore expects that the knowledge, skills and competence for group Level 1 and 2 (Basic Safeguarding Training) would have been acquired within individual professional/SLSCB partner agencies education programmes in accordance with Section 11 of the Children Act 2004 requirements. The focus on training provided by SLSCB is therefore the provision of good quality inter/multi agency training to groups of staff from a range of professions or disciplines who can learn and share from their experiences together. Hartlepool LSCB & Stockton on Tees LSCB are now working collaboratively to deliver multi agency training.

Training, learning and development are key factors in the SLSCB Learning and Improvement Framework.

Online (E-Learning) Safeguarding Children Training

SLSCB have invested in an on line training package with the Virtual College Safeguarding Children e-Academy to provide all those who work with children and families, access to an excellent range of e-learning courses.

Changes ahead – New Teeswide E-Learning Safeguarding Programme

We would like to inform you of changes that will be taking place in the near future which will provide you with a greater number of courses covering both adults and children. Self-registration will also be included in this offer, which is a new feature for some learners. Further details regarding how to access this new programme will be available in April.

In the meantime we would ask that any courses you are currently enrolled on or wish to enrol on are completed by the middle of March. You will not be able to complete any courses on the current system after that date.

You will however be able to re-enrol on the course using your current username when the new system is made available. 

Please email if you are having any problems accessing the course or need any help.

Please note applications are usually processed within two weeks of receipt. 

The e-Learning training material supplied by the e-Academy can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection and this gives you the flexibility of being able to work at a time and place that is convenient to you.

Additional E-Learning Courses

Domestic Violence Against Women and Girls

A good e-learning resource discussing violence against women and girls is being promoted through the Police Domestic Abuse Strategy. It has been designed for education staff working with children and young people aged between 11-19.  It may be helpful to support professional development of staff in most agencies that work with children and families.
