The Gateshead Local Safeguarding Children's Board, Gateshead Safeguarding Adults Board and Gateshead Community Safety Board have produced a comprehensive joint training programme which is free for partner agencies operating in Gateshead.

The training programme is co-ordinated by Gateshead Council Workforce Development. Our Learning and Development Self Service facility gives you access to your own account where you will be able to request, view, amend and cancel your learning and development activity.

Safeguarding Adult training resources
