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.

Inter-agency training provided by the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NSCP) is an excellent way to enable practitioners to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in their work.

Please see upcoming courses and events for Core Training Programme in 2019-2020, and e-learning  courses that are available.

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