Child Protection & Safeguarding Training Courses

Whatever your training requirements, I shall endeavor to help you.

I am a confident trainer and keep myself up to date with my own learning through reading and attending training days provided by other organisations (e.g. Lucy faithful Foundation/Child and Family Therapy/Nagalro). I have also attended over a period of 2 years the postgraduate certificate in the therapeutic arts. I have a background in working with domestic violence; adults with mental health needs and I have been a qualified social worker since 1990 (working with children and families).

I would be able to devise a programme once I establish what are your particular training needs. I can then put together a programme and a handout pack, ready for delivery.
