Multi-Agency Safeguarding Training 
Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board expects that as a professional agencies/organisation and/or practitioners working with children and young people have undertaken the necessary mandatory safeguarding training to possess the essential standards of competence required to safeguard children and young people.

Within Education settings this responsibility is outlined in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (2015) where the guidance suggests that Designated Safeguarding Officers within Education settings should;

 ‘Link with the local LSCB to make sure staff are aware of training opportunities and the latest local policies on safeguarding.’ Annex B (p49)
Training provided by Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board is not intended to replace the specific high quality training already in place for schools, provided by Liverpool School Improvement Team. However, research suggests that in order to effectively ‘work together’ single agency training may be complimented with multi agency training where appropriate. (John Carpenter et al 2009)

Inter-agency working brings together practitioners from different sectors and professions to provide an integrated way of working to support children, young people and families.

The purpose of training for multi-agency working is to help develop and foster a shared understanding of the tasks, processes, principles, and roles and responsibilities outlined in national guidance and local arrangements for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare.
