Training to help safeguard children is being offered around Cumbria.

Cumbria County Council’s Safeguarding Children Partnership is offering ‘Signs of Safety’ core training online.

More than 100 members of staff have already completed the training.

One person said: “I think it gives parents and children more opportunity to explain and understand their own life story, including their worries and their strengths.”

External partners who have an account on My Learning can log into that account and either click on the link or search Signs of Safety – Core Training in the course search box.

External partners who do not have an account will need to self-register to request an account.

Details of how to do this are on the council’s Safeguarding Children Partnership website.
