The events will take place on Wednesday 29 SeptemberMonday 11 October, Tuesday 16 November and Thursday 16 December.  

You will share ideas and expertise and concerns with others in order to generate the energy necessary to effect culture change. You will enjoy a dynamic learning environment for current and aspiring leaders in children’s and adult safeguarding practice, including statutory and non-statutory services in health, justice, education, sport and community sectors. 

In these one-hour taster events, course leader Stuart Gallagher will explain the course’s vision, its purpose and philosophy. You’ll also have an opportunity to experience a taster of the course’s learning experience.
