Welcome to East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership (ERSCP) Inter-Agency Training Programme.
ERSCP is committed to delivering high-quality inter-agency training which supports professionals, volunteers and the independent sector in their work, complimenting individual agency training strategies. Our range of courses and briefings are designed to ensure that anyone working with children and/or their family members has the knowledge and skills they need to deliver effective services to ensure children are safeguarded and their welfare promoted.
In the programme you will see a mix of well-established and new learning opportunities. They are informed by national guidance and legislation, ERSCP Learning and Improvement Framework, procedures and guidance and local policy.
Learning opportunities are provided through a variety of means including e-learning, full and half-day face-to-face training and briefings. Where possible these are delivered in locality areas in order to promote inter-agency working and provide networking opportunities for the various agencies attending.
Take time to look at the course aims and learning outcomes which will help you to choose a course relevant to the development of your skills and knowledge. Please discuss your learning needs with your line manager and ensure you have their approval prior to application.

To make sure all participants can focus on and get the most from the virtual courses available, we ask that you:
We ask all practitioners (and their managers) applying for training to ensure in advance that they have enough time in work to complete pre-course learning and can undertake training without simultaneously doing other activities. This will enable them to focus and to gain the maximum possible from ERSCP training.
Everyone should complete Awareness of Child Abuse and Neglect training and then refresh at least every 3 years.
The right course for you will depend upon:
Use supervision with your manager to select the appropriate course for your training needs.
Health Professionals - please note that ERSCP courses can contribute to meeting Intercollegiate document Level 3 competencies.
Ensure that the staff member/volunteer is working at the level of responsibility relevant to the course and; learning needs have been identified and are consistent with the aims and learning outcomes of the course.
By signing the application form you are giving a commitment that the applicant will attend for the whole course. If your staff member/volunteer is unable to attend, you must ensure that apologies are sent prior to the start of the course.
Spend time with the staff member/volunteer after the course to ensure learning is transferred into practice.
