Introducing our new training courses for 2024-25

Date: Tuesday, 23rd Jan 2024 | Category: Training

Hampshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP) is proud to present a powerful line-up of new webinars for the 2024-25 training year. These webinars have been carefully developed to address emerging safeguarding themes, incorporating insights from both local and national safeguarding cases and HSCP learning needs analysis and audits.

Information for each new course is listed below. Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage you to secure your free space without delay.

Professional curiosity is when a practitioner actively explores and tries to understand what is happening within a family or for an individual, instead of making assumptions or accepting information from a single source at face value. Disguised compliance occurs when parents and caregivers appear to cooperate with professionals in order to ease concerns and reduce their involvement.

Our webinar, Introduction to Professional Curiosity and Disguised Compliance, is designed to help you work with parents and caregivers who seem to be compliant with professionals working to protect children, but are actually diverting attention and minimising professional involvement. The webinar also emphasises the importance of maintaining a professionally curious mindset. This course is available to all professionals in Hampshire who work with children.

Cumulative harm happens when a child experiences one or more adverse circumstances or events over time. These continuous experiences can have a deep impact on the child, making them feel less secure, stable and cause a decline in their wellbeing. These feelings can often last into adulthood.

Our webinar, Understanding Cumulative Harm and Normalising Neglect, aims to give practitioners a better understanding of how significant and long-lasting the effects of cumulative harm can be. The session will draw on research and national reviews to explore how we can recognise and respond to cumulative harm, while also avoiding the danger of accepting neglect as normal within families.

Although military life has many benefits, families in the Armed Forces also experience unique challenges such as being separated from loved ones and having to relocate frequently. This can create stress and anxiety for parents, carers and children.

Attendees will learn about the support services available for the armed forces community and discover effective ways for professionals to help safeguard children in these families.

The gaming and gambling industry has always been under scrutiny due to the potential dangers it presents to children and young people. However, the COVID-19 lockdowns have led to a massive surge in the industry’s growth and made it increasingly popular among those under 18.

We will explore proactive measures that can be taken to ensure children’s safety and promote a positive gaming experience. Additionally, this course will assist professionals in devising strategies to prevent and address gambling-related harms, especially considering the growing accessibility of gambling and gaming activities.

Sharing information is crucial for understanding local and community issues and guiding the actions of the police to minimise threats, harm and risks. To facilitate information sharing, the Community Partnership Information Sharing (CPI) form provides professionals with a secure and direct way to share non-urgent information with the police regarding children or adults at risk.

Joining the The Importance of Community Partnership Information Sharing (CPI) Forms webinar will shed light on the importance of sharing information, the specific types of information that should be shared, the methods to do so effectively, and what happens after the information reaches the police. Additionally, you will receive valuable tips on completing the form, examples of common errors to avoid, and examples of best practice.

Serious violence has a devastating impact on the lives of victims and their families, generating fear within communities and incurring significant costs for society.

The Serious Violence Duty is a key part of the government’s effort to foster collaboration and strategic planning at a local level, aiming to prevent and reduce serious violence. With a multi-agency approach and a focus on understanding the causes and consequences of serious violence using a public health approach, the objective is to prioritise prevention and early intervention.

Delivered by the Violence Reduction Partnership for Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton, the Introduction to the Serious Violence Duty webinar is for professionals whose role involves serious violence reduction. It is relevant to a range of agencies, including local authorities, police, fire and rescue authorities, health authorities, criminal justice agencies, youth offending teams, educational authorities, prisons and youth custody agencies.
