In light of the recent announcement made by the Government regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the OSCB is postponing all face to face courses. For now all face to face courses are cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
As a Board, we understand that this may lead to a situation where practitioners, paid or unpaid, working with children and young people are without the necessary training that is needed to adhere to national and local requirements to continue to have face to face contact with children and young people.
The OSCB is therefore providing the guidance below as a temporary measure in these extra ordinary circumstances. This guidance will be in place for the Generalist, Advanced and Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) mandatory courses only until face to face core safeguarding training is again being provided.
All practitioners wishing to attend the OSCB free training and/or learning events, need to register on the OSCB training system. To register, book face to face training or to access e-learning, please see Registering on the training/booking system
Please note, practitioners need to register with a personal email address or individual work email address and not use the generic email address for your workplace e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org and not email@example.com
How do I organise for OSCB to deliver in-house training for my organisation?
The OSCB can arrange for an approved trainer to deliver Generalist Safeguarding training to staff within your organisation at a location/venue, date and time which is convenient for you. However there is a charge of £300 to train up to 25 professionals. If you would like more information or would like to arrange a bespoke session please contact the OSCB team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Generalist Safeguarding Training is the only course that can be delivered in house. This is because the Advanced and Designated Safeguarding Lead Training must be delivered to a multi-agency audience
