Signs of Safety Virtual Training for Practitioners - 4 half days

Signs of Safety (SofS) is the leading collaborative approach to child protection. It is a Practitioner’s model with a risk assessment framework at its heart.

St. Helens want a consistent collaborative approach across the partnership and have committed to implementing 'Signs of Safety' as its overarching practice model for all its work with children and families.

This is an introduction to the model and how it can be used in practice across the Safeguarding Partnership. This course has now been adapted to be delivered as virtual training.


  • The course will be delivered by the Signs of Safety Implementation Manager Nikki Carter supported by a SofS Practice Lead from the St. Helens Partnership.
  • The course will be delivered over 4 half days (3 hours) equating to the full 2 days training - 4 afternoons on 2 consecutive days over 2 weeks.
  • The whole course needs to be completed in order to fully understand and be able to implement skills learnt into daily working practice.
  • The Trainer/Implementation Manager will be available to offer 1:1 support for all offline work.
  • The course capacity is limited so no one will be able to attend who hasn't already booked.
