1 Medway Safeguarding Children Board Safeguarding children competency framework Minimum standards of learning/knowledge expected from professionals or volunteers in Medway or come into contact with children whether through direct or indirect and un-regular work. MSCB Safeguarding children competency framework version control Document Owner Medway Safeguarding Children Board, Gun Wharf, Medway Review date May 2016 Version Detail of change Date 1 Document created May

2 Introduction The MSCB safeguarding children competency framework is designed to ensure that all professionals and volunteers (referred to as staff from here on in) that operate in Medway are aware of the basic standard of knowledge or competency they should hold. This is to ensure Medway is a safe place for children and young people when accessing services because Medway staff are aware of their responsibilities, can demonstrate the appropriate responses to safeguarding issues and are confident and competent in their safeguarding skills. The framework applies to a range of staff in a range of settings, it includes but is not restricted to; the children s workforce, those working directly with children, young people and their families in child/family specific or front line public services e.g. children s social care, early year settings, various health services, schools. the adult s workforce, those working with adults who may have caring responsibilities working in services directed at specific adult needs e.g. adult mental health, substance misuse, domestic abuse. the public facing workforce, those working in public services who come into contact with children, young people and their families but not through direct work e.g. bus drivers, librarians, administration staff in any universal service. This competency framework is primarily focused on safeguarding children. Whilst there is some cross over of learning that would support the adult safeguarding competencies, this document is not a comprehensive framework for the adult workforce. Adult safeguarding competencies will come from the Kent and Medway Adult Safeguarding Board. This framework has been developed in line with the Safeguarding children and young people: roles and competences for health care staff. Intercollegiate document. Third edition: March 2014 to ensure local need is reflected in the learning of health staff. However, health staff should continue to refer to both documents. The MSCB has endeavoured to include all competencies that relate to safeguarding and apply to the multi agency workforce. However, the MSCB acknowledges that single agencies will also have their own competencies that are specific to their area of the workforce. Staff should refer to both, which should compliment each other. Whilst volunteers are included in this framework further information for the voluntary sector can be found through Safe network

3 Relevancy of training for individual staff members should be decided by line managers or those supervising, and may be written into job descriptions. Training attended should be relevant to the individual member of staff. With thanks to the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Children Learning, Safeguarding Competency Framework. April 2014 Suggested training/learning methods Different recognised learning methods which may support professional required competencies: Formally taught courses, such as those offered by the MSCB (multi agency training) or within a professionals own agency (single agency training) Practitioner events e.g. specific themed workshops Online course, E-learning Attending subject focused taster sessions e.g. MSCB Tea time tasters, or briefing sessions. Attendance at multi agency conferences e.g. MSCB annual conference, MDAF (Medway Domestic Abuse Forum annual conference) Higher and further education e.g. professional qualifications Secondments or job shadowing Review of nationally produced research e.g. Research in practice Frequency of learning Frequency of formal learning activity is determined under each group. However this applies to the children s workforce generally. Designated Child Protection Coordinators (DCPCs) have to complete at least one day of formal learning evrry 2 years. Employer/MSCB responsibilities The MSCB Learning & Development Group is responsible for the co-ordination, commissioning, delivery and evaluation of the multi-agency safeguarding children training and development programme and is accountable to the MSCB Board. MSCB learning and development opportunities will have a focus on skills, knowledge and behaviours required for interagency working. These are suitable for all staff who are in regular and/or intense irregular contact with children and young people and/or their parents or carers and who work predominantly with them. Individual agencies are responsible for ensuring that their staff are competent and confident in carrying out their responsibilities for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children inline with the MSCB competency framework. Employers also have a responsibility to identify adequate resources and support for multi-agency training by: Providing staff with relevant expertise to support the MSCB by delivering training through peer support within the MSCB learning pool. 3

4 Allocating the time required to complete multi-agency tasks appropriately Releasing staff to attend the appropriate multi-agency training courses Ensuring that members of staff receive relevant single agency training which enables them to maximise the learning derived from multi-agency training, and have opportunities to put their learning into practice Contributing to the planning, resourcing, delivery and evaluation of training Medway staff should identify which staff group they belong to. Where a staff member has more than one role which go across more than one group the higher group number competencies should apply. Further examples can be found in the group specific chapters below. Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 s Staff in infrequent and indirect contact with children, young people and/or parents/carers who may become aware of possible abuse or neglect.
