About this course

The aim of the training is to:

  • To consider and share practice on the implementation of current and relevant safeguarding policy and practices.
  • To consider how reflective practice can be used when considering threshold levels in accordance with the Pathway to Provision document


  • To strengthen the Designated Person including Childminder’s role in supporting setting staff to reflect upon what they observe, information shared and the actions required to ensure children are kept safe and families are supported
  • To increase participants confidence and understanding of the benefits and impact reflective practice contributes to early years and childcare settings.

These sessions will build on the initial Safer Setting Network sessions and provide an opportunity for continued development for previous delegates.
