Date: Thursday, 29th Jun 2023 | Category: General

The Tri-Borough Safeguarding Children Partnership (Greenwich, Lewisham and Bexley) has commissioned Unconscious Bias & Cultural Competence in Safeguarding Children training for practitioners working with children and families and, who contribute to assessing, planning, intervening, and reviewing the needs of a child or young person on the following dates/times:

  • Thursday 19th October 2023, 9:30am to 3:00pm
  • Tuesday 30th January 2024, 9:30am to 3:00pm

There are 30 places per date available.  This will operate on a first come, first served basis. A waiting list will be open to determine if a further date is required.

Aims & Objectives :

  • Increase understanding of the influences of culture and faith/belief systems on parenting;
  • Display confidence in talking about their own and other people’s attitudes and beliefs – and how these might affect their judgment when providing services and therefore explore the role of bias in decision making;
  • Demonstrate cultural competence and professional curiosity when leading or joining in assessments or offering any other services to children and their families;
  • Understand the legislation and procedures for safeguarding;
  • Outline the key local issues related to the course topics.

Delegates are responsible for ensuring they have management / budget holder approval prior to booking onto courses.  This is in the event of your non-attendance or late cancellation where a fee of £75 will be applied.
