We provide a wide variety of learning programmes and workshops across Hertfordshire to develop skills for safeguarding children, young people and adults.

The HSAB Workforce Strategy provides guidance on the recommended minimum requirements for safeguarding education and training.

Training opportunities

Our training follows on the level 1 awareness sessions provided by agencies to their staff.

Our programme includes full day and lite bite sessions. 

All learning events are run by knowledgeable trainers and experts in the field so you can be sure that the content will be interesting, stimulating and reflect safeguarding best practice in Hertfordshire.

Learning Hubs

The Partnership runs a Learning Hub which aims to improve local safeguarding practice for both children and vulnerable adults.

The Learning Hub is a feedback loop between front line practitioners and the Strategic Partnership, ensuring learning on priority local issues is shared and acted on at all levels in a timely way. The Hub will identify three themes each year.

Prevent programme

Prevent is part of the Government's CONTEST Strategy which aims to safeguard people from being drawn into or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent Strategy aims to:

  • Respond to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and extremism, and the threat from those who promote these views.
  • Provide practical help to prevent individuals from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support.
  • Work with a wide range of organisations (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health) where there are risks of radicalisation.

Further information on Prevent can be found at www.ltai.info

You can report radicalisation concerns to prevent@herts.pnn.police.uk. or on 01438 735373 (office hours only)

Information can be submitted anonymously via the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789321

If you require an immediate response from the Police - dial 999.
