HSCP - Training and Resources

The HSCP/HSAB have developed a new webpage on Training and Resources. Due to Covid-19 our face to face training has been suspended, but the majority of our training offer is now available via live webinar sessions. Please visit our new webpage to access our monthly L&D Programme, where you can see what courses are on offer and how you can book onto them, please click here.

The Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children Partnership’s virtual Learning Hubs are coming up for front-line practitioners – the theme is Safeguarding Children Online. 

The sessions will be led by Dr Peter Buzzi and Claudia Megele both experts in the field. 

At the learning hubs you will gain a greater understanding of:

  • How children and young people are being exposed to online risks and online sexual harm from a young age.
  • The impact of social media on brain and behaviour
  • Child-centred practice
  • Online risks

There are five sessions available that are detailed below and they will run for 2 ½ hours. Please click here to book your place or refer to the attached flyer.
