Single Agency Safeguarding Training

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Partnership Board are committed to supporting the development and implementation of effective safeguarding training across the county. We are keen to support partners in this area; therefore, should you need any advice or support in developing single agency training please contact

The guidance and resources available on this page are designed to support agencies to keep their training up to date and include learning shared by the partnership boards.

Interagency Principles

The CPSPB have developed a set of inter-agency training principles to help guide agencies as to the fundamental elements required within safeguarding training to support professionals working with children, young people, and adults at risk.

All Safeguarding training is governed by the following inter-agency principles:

Child/Person Centred / Lived Experience of the Child/Adult

Training should reflect that the welfare of the child/adult at risk is paramount and that it incorporates and actively promotes the child’s/adult’s rights’, ‘voice’ and their ‘needs’. All adult safeguarding training should reflect the principles of Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP).

Partnership with Parents, Family and Carers

Training recognises and actively promotes the need for working in partnership and engaging with, where possible, parents, carers and family.

Diversity / Cultural Competence

Training is informed by and reflects the diversity and cultural needs of the individuals, communities and organisations within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.


Training will focus on shared information and communication between professionals to safeguard children and adults.

Interagency Collaboration

Training promotes the need for interagency working, bringing together people and organisations, to effectively safeguard children and adults

Evidence Based

Training will be ‘evidence based’, containing the latest research, reflective practice and the lessons learned from case reviews at a local and a national level

Validation of Training

Please note that, as of November 2022, the Board no longer validates single agency training. However, we are happy to offer support and guidance on what should be included within single agency training.

There are a variety of resources available across our website that can be used within single agency training to support safeguarding children and adults at risk.

The following resources are a guide but are not exhaustive.

  • Power point slide packs containing local safeguarding processes and procedures
  • Multi-Agency Safeguarding Policies and Procedures
  • Practitioner briefings on the learning from local auditing and lessons learned from Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews (CSPRs) and Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs).
  • Leaflets and posters available for practitioners, children, parents, adults at risk, carers, and the general public.


Sways are multi-media resources that exist online and can be viewed at any time. We have developed sways for a wide range of topics related to safeguarding, and they may be used as a precursor to or supplement within training.
