Are you interested in becoming a trainer for Oxfordshire safeguarding children board (OSCB)?
OSCB Trainers comprise police officers, teachers, social workers, front line workers and clinical leads from health settings. OSCB trainers work with children, childcare professionals, and safeguarding issues on a regular basis. Many are specialists in their own setting. The OSCB would like to increase the number of trainers from voluntary and community settings who can deliver the generalist safeguarding course material.
The OSCB has a ‘train the trainer’ programme to help new colleagues become fully fledged trainers. They are first trained by the OSCB on delivering the information and the content, they then observe a safeguarding course and then co-train with an experience trainer before they are fully fledged. Courses are always delivered by two colleagues. Materials, activities and all logistics are managed by the OSCB. The OSCB Training Co-ordinator is their port of call for any queries that they might have.
Trainers are kept up to date on the learning from case reviews, new guidance and local tools endorsed by the OSCB through 3 development days per year. At these sessions trainers can ask questions, share any concerns and find out the latest safeguarding information. A training agreement is set out so that the commitment is clear and well managed. Trainers get involved in the OSCB conference and are valued members of our local safeguarding partnership.
Training appeals to people who communicate well, are passionate about safeguarding and like a new challenge. If you would like to be considered for the training pool please contact the OSCB Training Team on 01865 815843 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
