Tony Griffin Safeguarding Children Training

Welcome to Tony Griffin Safeguarding Children Training

Be trained in how to respond to safeguarding concerns

The statutory guidance ' Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 '  published by HM Government reminds us that children can be abused or exploited in many different ways. Professionals need to be able to respond to young people’s experiences of significant harm beyond their families as well as harm within their families.  Please follow the link below to the guidance 

We can deliver CPD Certified training courses that help to address these issues

Our speciality is delivering bespoke training

Testimonial from a Wiltshire Independent school

"The Headmaster and Governors are really pleased that we have so many Pastoral staff now trained by you and I can already see the difference coming through in people's confidence and awareness when dealing with welfare issues"

Testimonial from a recent course

“It made a real difference to have training that was tailored to our needs as counsellors working with young people, helping us to identify the times when we need to be concerned, even when children are unable to say directly what is happening to them, and how we can best enable them to get the help they need. 

It was an interesting and productive day, and I think will have made a real contribution to our ability to work safely”

Testimonial from an early years setting Safeguarding Lead

"Using the risk assessment grid, fanstastic way to analyse prior to referral. I've been in this role for 10 years and it's the first time I have seen it"
