LSCB Multi-Agency Training

East Sussex LSCB provides a thriving training programme which is well respected by partner agencies. The LSCB Training Programme 2017-18 provides a wide range of courses to ensure professionals who work with children and families stay up-to-date with current local and national safeguarding practice.

Looking back between April 2016 and March 2017, 65 training courses were delivered, attended by 752 participants from a variety of statutory, private and voluntary agencies. Evaluation feedback from courses is used to improved the range and content of courses we deliver, and we are continually developing our training offer to ensure that it meets the needs of professionals working with children and families.

To find out more information about all of our courses, and how to book, please visit the East Sussex Learning Portal.
