Levels of Staff Identifying Training which is essential, recommended & optional

How do you identify the Safeguarding Children training which is essential to your role?

Depending on the level of interaction of staff (paid or unpaid) have with children, young people & their families or wider partners. In order to decide which level of training you require we have split the workforce into 4 levels of staff (X, A, B, & C). We have then listed the level of training course & indicated which training levels are relevant to each role.

Essential (E) Those course which are crucial to the role
Recommended (R) Those course which are important for the role
Optional (O) Those course which are useful to the role
Not Recommended (N/A) Those which are not particularly recommended for the role

We recommend that practitioners complete courses in the following order:

  1. Those which are essential
  2. Those courses which are Recommended can then be accessed
  3. Those courses which are Optional can then be accessed where the title and content are felt to be relevant to the role

Services should also be aware that those practitioners where a course is deemed to be essential should attend those courses before practitioners where the same course is recommended or optional.
