The Pan Bedfordshire Training Unit joins the three authorities covering Bedfordshire, that are Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton, and their approach to multi agency safeguarding learning and development. The shared ambition is that professionals are provided with the skills and confidence to enable all children and young people in the county to lead safe, happy and healthy lives; with opportunities to learn, develop and fulfil their potential. The extensive training program on offer can be viewed on-line – visit LSCB Safeguarding Training for face-to-face courses and e-learning Self Registration System for on-line courses.
Training provided by voluntary organisations for the sector can be promoted through our VOCypf Newsletter. If you are holding events or training that are likely to be of interest and accessible to other groups within Bedfordshire working with children, young people and families then do let us know through firstname.lastname@example.org.
