Short Awareness Raising Sessions

Short awareness raising sessions are designed to provide a more accessible way of accessing learning and development opportunities.

All sessions are FREE OF CHARGE to attend but places are limited so you will need to book your place (places are offered on a first come, first served basis).


Professional Curiosity Workshops (3 hours) – 9.30am to 12.30pm – 20 spaces

Professional curiosity is the capacity and skill to explore and understand what is happening within families and within the lives of adults who may be at risk, rather than making assumptions or accepting things at face value.

The BSCB and BSAB are jointly hosting a series of FREE OF CHARGE workshops looking at how to understand the nature and importance of curiosity and inquisitiveness and to make the links between professional curiosity and effective safeguarding practice. Further information on the workshops can be found by clicking here.

The content of the workshops are the same for both adults and children’s practitioners so if you work in adult services and their dates are full you are welcome to book onto the children’s services dates below (and vice versa).
