Single Agency Training Checklist

All agencies are responsible for ensuring that their workforce is competent and confident in carrying out its responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Employers and voluntary groups should ensure their workers and volunteers are aware of how to recognise and respond to safeguarding concerns, including signs of possible maltreatment. This knowledge and expertise should be put into place before they attend inter-agency training.

Organisations continue to have multiple options when it comes to providing Safeguarding Training for all staff at Level 1 and Level 2 training. The Designated Safeguarding Lead may deliver this; organisations can commission an external trainer for further information please contact:

Email: (please note that you will get a response from us within 3 working days)

If organisations wish to commission a trainer via the Workforce Development Team they should contact please note that an additional fee will be applied for this service.

Safeguarding Children: Basic Awareness (Level 1) is provided fully funded for all organisations working with children and young people in Kingston and Richmond, and isi the preferred method of delivery for this training, you can acces training via this link: 

For those agencies who may wish to provide their own training at this level, the KRSCP has created a checklist which lists the core areas which should be covered and suggested content. It is the responsibility of the individual agency / organisation to audit their in-house safeguarding training against the core content as detailed in this checklist.
The checklist has been agreed by Kingston and Richmond Safeguarding Children Partnership to provide a standardised approach for all our partner agencies.View checklist
The checklist will be reviewed annually by Kingston and Richmond Learning and Development Training Subgroup and will be revised as required by any changes in guidance / legislation. 
For further advice with regards to this checklist or using an Independent Provider, please contact: (please note that you will get a response from us within 3 working days)
Introductory Level Safeguarding Training should be taken by staff and volunteers in the following roles:
Group 1 - Staff in infrequent contact with children, young people and/or parents/carers who may become aware of possible abuse or neglect. 
Group 2 - Those in regular contact or have a period of intense but irregular contact, with children, young people and/or parents/carers, who may be in a position to identify concerns about maltreatment, including those that may arise from the use of Early Help Assessments.
Group 3 - Members of the workforce who work predominantly with children, young people and/or their parents/carers and who could potentially contribute to assessing, planning, intervening and reviewing the needs of a child and parenting capacity where there are safeguarding concerns.
Group 4 - Members of the workforce who have particular responsibilities in relation to undertaking section 47 enquiries, including professionals from health, education, police and children’s social care; those who work with complex cases and social work staff responsible for co-ordinating assessments of children in need.
Group 5 - Professional advisors, named and designated lead professionals.
In addition to the Single Agency Introductory Safeguarding Training Checklist, Kingston and Richmond KRSCPs have also developed and agreed a minimum standards checklist for single agency safeguarding training. 
Please make sure your in house training meets the requirements of both checklists.
