Safeguarding Children (Level 3) – North Yorkshire 2019/20

November 19 @ 12:15 pm - 4:00 pm

Level 3 Safeguarding Children Refresher Training Workshops for Primary Care HCPs

(Including but not exclusive to – GPs, Practice Nurses, ANPs, Paramedics, GP Registrars)

Level 3 Safeguarding Children workshops are arranged and facilitated by WPEM Limited and experienced professionals from Harrogate Foundation Trust Safeguarding Children Team.

The training is based on the competencies identified in the Intercollegiate Document ‘Safeguarding Children and Young People: Roles and Competencies for Health Professionals’ (2019). Most clinicians working in primary care are ‘Level 3 – requiring additional knowledge, skills and competencies’. Refresher training for this group is a minimum of 12hrs over a 3 year period and 16hrs minimum for Safeguarding GP Leads. As Safeguarding advice is constantly updated it is considered best practice to receive regular as oppose to bulk updates where possible.

WPEM Limited will continue to welcome HCPs to level 3 updates, the workshops will be offered in three hourly sessions at regular intervals throughout the year.  The content will be updated on a rolling annual basis which runs April to April – over 3 years this will provide 9hrs training – additional training can be made up e-learning, CP supervision, mulit-agency training, etc….
