We believe that training and workforce development is essential to help protect children and young people in Torbay. We organise a range of different training events and online learning and work with a framework based on the intercollegiate document.
There is a variety of training on offer from the TSCP to support the children and young people's workforce to safeguard children and young people and we're developing closer links with the Torbay Safeguarding Adults Board Opens in a new window (TSAB).
We can offer you the level 3 multi-agency courses you require for staff who work closely with children, young people and their families and who make decisions as to whether to make a referral to the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub or completing Early Help Assessments. These courses cost out and you have some choices in the level you wish to pay. You can access training through the i-Learn Opens in a new window website.

Further courses available to Torbay practitioners, including free Restorative Practice training offered to all partner agencies:
As One Children’s Service, Torbay Children’s Services and Local Area continue to work to adopt Restorative Practice (also known as Relational Practice), a strength-based approach that recognises that building a positive relationship with children, young people and families who need support is important – acknowledging that listening to children, young people and families and working ‘with’ rather than doing things ‘for’ or ‘to’ people is the best way we can help support. Further details can be found here: Restorative Practice - Torbay Safeguarding Children Partnership. Torbay Children Services offer free Restorative Practice training to all partner agencies – listed in the flyer above.
Further updates and information on training, including practitioner training for SEND and Torbay’s Graduated Response can also be found here on the Torbay Family Hub:
Please note, in order to view the Torbay Family Hub practitioner area, you will need to register on your first visit, here: Practitioner login - Family Hub (torbayfamilyhub.org.uk)
Further resources have been collated to further develop practitioners in their knowledge and understanding of specific topics. Please see the Learning and Development Training Resources page.
