  • The obstacles to responding effectively to neglect
  • Seeing, Hearing and Helping Children & Families

What Safeguarding Learning and Development do I need?

The CSCB L&D Programme is based on the pan-London Competence Still Matters (2014)  which provides detail on eight staff groups and the minimum training content, delivery and outcome requirements in respect of each group. This document is not replicated here, so you must refer to the full version for further details

  • It is important to note that Competence Still Matters (2104) should be used to determine single-agency safeguarding learning and development, whether this is delivered in-house or commissioned.
  • This table illustrates the staff group a role may fall into, example roles are given but are in no way exhaustive.
  • It is recommended that safeguarding training is refreshed at least every three years.

What Safeguarding Learning Do I Need – is a summary guide to help you determine what safeguarding learning and development you or your organisation’s role need to engage with.
