About Richmond LSCB

Learning And Development Subgroup

The Learning and Development Subgroup is responsible for the identification, planning, delivery and evaluation of training to ensure all those coming into contact/working with children in the boroughs of Richmond upon Thames and Kingston upon Thames are competent and up to date with current legislation and procedures to help them safeguard and promote the welfare of children effectively.

The subgroup ensures that policies and procedures are in place relating to training people who work with children and young people or in services affecting the safety and welfare of children. It oversees the provision and evaluation of safeguarding training across the children’s workforce in both boroughs. It also ensures that the learning and development activity of both LSCBs takes account of developments in national and regional policy and practice, as well as relevant research, and provides advice to agencies on their in-house safeguarding training
