About NSCP training

Each agency is responsible for ensuring that staff are appropriately trained to enable them to carry out their duties. While single agency training is important in safeguarding children and responding to their welfare, no one agency can do this effectively without working in partnership with other agencies.

Please see upcoming courses and events for Core Training Programme in 2020-2021, and e-learning  courses that are available.

For full details and information on all NSCP training, download our Training Programme[PDF].

Course Information & Charges

Our aim is to make NSCP courses and events available to all practitioners who work with children and families in Nottinghamshire. The type of organisation you work for and whether your organisation contributes to the partnership will determine if there is a charge for the training you access. Please note: as from April 1st 2020 we have implemented a new revised charging policy which may affect some organisations who do not contribute financially to the Partnership. E.g. Schools, District & Borough Councils, Fire & Rescue service.
