Barnardo’s provides training to other agencies including high quality safeguarding training.

Our training is designed to support a range of professionals working with children, young people and families. We have a proven track record in providing quality training to local authorities and other public, private and voluntary sector organisations.

Types of training

We design and deliver high-quality training for any group size and support every level of learner, including new inductees (level 1), practitioners, senior practitioners and managers (levels 4 and 5).

We offer both standard and bespoke face-to-face training in a wide range of topics, including:

  • safeguarding, including child sexual exploitation and domestic violence
  • childcare/early years
  • working with young people
  • supervision and risk assessment
  • special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
  • working with families and relationships
  • female genital mutilation (FGM)

We also design and build bespoke e-learning products.

I now have more confidence in identifying issues and about where to go for help or assistance.

Benefits of training with us

Our training courses are accredited and delivered by knowledgeable and enthusiastic professionals, and we work collaboratively with teams to meet specific training needs.

Our training consultants draw on expertise from a wide range of disciplines, including:

  • early years
  • social work
  • police and education

We are an accredited centre for CACHE and CPD learning programmes.

This has been the best course I have attended. It will enable me to make informed decisions regarding placing children at risk of CSE in appropriate placements.

Barnardo’s Training and Consultancy recognise concerns about the delivery of face to face training given the current context. Our first concern will be the well-being of our Participants and Trainers.

We can postpone dates already agreed or alternatively can consider delivery via alternative means e.g. Webex where it is appropriate to do so.

Bookings are also being taken for later in the year.

We wish you, your colleagues and families well at this challenging time.
