Public Services Training was set up by Richard Woodley, a former Child Abuse Investigation detective with Thames Valley Police, to deliver Child Protection courses on behalf of Local Authorities. We now provide ‘best value’ learning solutions directly to a range of professional organisations including Schools, Childcare settings, Charities, Housing Associations and Transport providers.
We focus our learning on empowering practitioners to protect children from harm. Our trainers are experienced and qualified practitioners having worked within a variety of public service professions such as policing, teaching, social care, health and local government. Our learning philosophy incorporates a compassionate mind-based approach to ensure all learning fosters a safe, meaningful and collaborative experience for participants.
All training incorporates the requirements of the Children Acts 1989 and 2004 along with statutory guidance, ‘Keeping children safe in education’ and ‘Working together to safeguard children’.
Courses can be arranged Monday to Friday morning's, afternoons and evenings.
Normally held at Bracknell Open Learning Centre
