Safeguarding training

Training schedule / application process

As a result of, and in order to support, the extraordinary pressure and challenges being placed upon our multi-agency partners to manage the current impact of COVID-19 in Shropshire and our bordering areas, the Shropshire Safeguarding Community Partnership (SSCP) have reviewed the need for and means of conducting all future meetings and multi-agency training provision. 

The SSCP Business Unit has suspended all multi-agency face to face training at present.  Virtual training sessions are being developed and we now have some training sessions in the calendar which are being delivered via Microsoft Teams for professionals or volunteers working with Shropshire children, young people and their families.  

Please view the current SSCP Multi-agency Training Schedule or Early Help Multi-agency Training Schedule for further information on all training currently available to book.

Please note that as of November 2020, we are in the process of changing over to a new booking system.  All learners must ensure that they log in to their old SSCP learner record to take screen shots of their learner record and download their certificates of attendance from any training they have attended since 2016.  Training records cannot be transferred to the new booking system.  Please Log in to the old Virtual College booking system here before 1st December 2020.  If you have forgotten your log in details, please email

Any learner who has an account set up with Leap into Learning should now book any SSCP multi-agency safeguarding training or Early Help training via Leap into Learning

Anyone who doesn't have an account with Leap into Learning should email with their NAME - AGENCY - JOB TITLE - INDIVIDUAL EMAIL so that an training account can be set up.

Please also download our useful Information Handouts for Children and for Adults which is kept up to date with useful contact details for safeguarding Shropshire's children.

The SSCP has also developed 2 Podcasts which are aimed at induction level safeguarding training for those new to their role.  Access the 'If You See Something Part 1' Podcast here and access the 'If You See Something Part 2' Podcast here.
