Multi-Agency Training

The purpose of the MSCB Multi-agency Training is to help develop and foster the following, in order to achieve better outcomes for children and young people:    

  • a shared understanding of the tasks, processes, principles, and roles and responsibilities outlined in national guidance and local arrangements for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare;
  • more effective and integrated services at both the strategic and individual case level;
  • improved communication between professionals, including a common understanding of key terms, definitions and thresholds for action;
  • effective working relationships, including an ability to work in multi-disciplinary groups or teams, and;
  • sound decision-making, based on information sharing, thorough assessment, critical analysis and professional judgement.

The MSCB Multi-agency Training courses have been tailored to meet the needs of professionals within the partnership agencies and in the Voluntary, Community and Faith (VCF) sector.
