The Impact of our Training

The Impact of Our Training

A core business objective of the SSCB is to “ensure that single agency and multi-agency training is effective and contributes to a safe workforce”.

SSCB Training Evaluation and Impact Analysis

SSCB have adopted the Kirkpatrick model of evaluation.

Stage One – delegates are asked to complete a Personal Action/Development Plan & Learning for the Organisation at the training course.

Stage Two – all delegates are asked to complete an evaluation form post course. Currently this is via Surrey Says and for September 2016 onwards will be through the new SSCB booking system.

Stage Three – Three months after each course, a sample of delegates are asked to complete an SSCB Impact Analysis of Safeguarding Training via Surrey Says. Sample questions include:

  • I have made changes to my regular practice in response to what I learnt on the training.
  • I have shared aspects of this training with my colleagues.
  • The training has increased my skills in working with children and young people.

Stage Four – Telephone interviews or focus group based on results from the SSCB Impact Analysis. At stage three, delegates are asked to provide their contact details if they wish for the SSCB to contact them to discuss the training and their learning in more detail. This may either be via a telephone interview or focus group depending on the level of responses.

Impact Analysis – CSE Level 2 and 3 Training



We have just carried out an impact analysis of the Early Help training in our training programme. A report will be published once available.

Analysis of Learning Action Plans

SSCB previously requested for delegates to complete a Learning Action Plan (LAP) after attending Foundation Module 1. We now no longer ask delegates to complete a LAP as we have adopted the evaluation model above. Below are two reports analysing the LAP’s completed by delegates and the actions taken by the SSCB in response.

Quality Assurance of Multi Agency Training

To ensure our training is of a high standard, the SSCB quality assure the multi agency courses it commissions and delivers. All SSCB Trainers (internal and external) and commissioned trainers will be observed at least once every two years to ensure they are effectively delivering safeguarding training to ensure professionals  are competent in safeguarding children and young people in Surrey. This process supports SSCB trainers as part of their continued professional development.


Quality Assurance of Single Agency Training

If you or your agency deliver safeguarding children training and wish to be considered for approval by the Surrey Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB) for inclusion on the SSCB Single Agency Approved Training Register, please download and complete the quality assurance pack below.
