Event description
Safeguarding Children: Childminder Designated Safeguarding Lead
For: Childminders only
Aims and Objectives
Children rely on adults to keep them safe.  As a childminder you have a responsibility to ensure children achieve the best life chances, the designated lead is an essential role for a childminder in supporting children to achieve this outcome.
This training will give you greater confidence and awareness to recognise, respond and refer if you have any concerns about a child’s welfare.  You will also explore your role in working with parents and other professionals to keep children safe. 
This training will equip you with the knowledge to successfully meet your safeguarding responsibilities and supports the development of the necessary skills and competencies to effectively fulfil the role of Designated Safeguarding Lead as defined in the Leicestershire & Rutland Safeguarding Board’s (LSCB) competency framework.
Leicestershire County Council’s Early Years Inclusion and Childcare Service recommends for best practice that all Leicestershire Early Years Providers and Practitioners including Childminders and Out of School Clubs follow and adhere to The Safeguarding Children Competency Framework
The Competency Framework recommends that training/learning is attended every three years (minimum), and, best practice would be for this to be multi-agency training. As well as meeting the competencies within the Framework, attending multi-agency training will support with learning, networking and will allow organisations to better understand the roles of partner agencies. This particularly applies to those who carry out safeguarding assessments and investigations.
The Competency Framework acknowledges that in addition to traditional training events, there are different ways of learning and developing. Whilst training activities help to provide the knowledge and skills that contribute to staff being able to meet their competencies. Attending a training course does not automatically mean that the competencies will have been met - discussion and verification after the event may be required.
This training is delivered by trainers who have worked as childminders and understand the uniqueness of working as a childminder.
