Inverclyde Child Protection Committee training is available free of charge to anyone working with children/young people or parents within Inverclyde.  

The aims of our training are to :-

  • Support professionals from different agencies to work effectively together to protect children
  • Help professionals keep up to date with relevant legislation, research, good practice and guidance
  • Ensure staff are effectively and relevantly trained to protect children

Our courses are linked to the National Framework for Child Protection Learning and Development in Scotland 2012.  The framework identifies three workforce groups, each of which requires different competencies, knowledge and skills.  To find out more about the framework and how it is being implemented in Inverclyde download our Learning and Development Framework Briefing.  Word documents listing the competencies, knowledge and skills for each workforce group are also available to download from the documents box.

As well as our programme of training courses we offer briefing sessions on topical issues.   


Details of the courses currently available and a list of all the courses we plan to offer this year can be accessed from the documents box.
