Our Education Courses
This one-day introductory programme of Social Care training Safeguarding Disabled Children aims to explore good practice in the protection of disabled children from abuse, and promote effective working together for all those concerned for their safety and welfare.
We offer tailored 1:1 Direct Supervision Training sessions facilitated by trained supervisors for individual and group needs.
This one day course builds on knowledge and skills gained on level one and will enable participants to develop a more detailed understanding of the communicative and environmental strategies that are known to help autistic children and adults make sense of the world.
This four day programme is usually delivered as the two day core programme, plus an additional two days approximately one month later. There will be an expectation that participants complete tasks in the intervening period, thus enabling learning to be put into practice. This course may be supplemented by an observation of supervision practice afters day two and day four. his course aims to provide participants with the skills required to deliver effective supervision with a focus on complex practice dynamics and methods and tools for developing and improving performance.

Recording a style of supervision which moves beyond a focus on task completion can be a challenge and for example, within Children’s Services, Ofsted inspections in a number of Local Authorities have commented that reflection and analysis are insufficiently evidenced within the supervision records. In-Trac believes that good recording is an important element of good practice as it provides the opportunity for the supervisee and supervisor to reflect on, summarise and agree the key elements of their discussions as well as providing a permanent record of the reasons underlining decisions which is available to others. We have been working with a number of organisations to create formats that support the recording of reflective supervision and have developed this one day workshop to develop the skills of supervisors in this task. The aim of the day is therefore to explore best practice in recording supervision with a focus on the effective recording of case discussions in the child’s records. It is an interactive participative day focusing on the practical skills involved. It is assumed that participants will have attended previous In-Trac training equipping them with the skills required to deliver reflective supervision
The aim of this course is to equip managers, owners and supervisors within nursery and day care settings with the knowledge and skills required to play an active role within the safeguarding system and maintain effective safeguarding practice within their own setting.
This one day training workshop aims to offer staff in receipt of 1:1 supervision in social care an opportunity to understand the key elements of effective supervision so they can work with their supervisors in order to maximise its effectiveness
This is a one day course for staff to provide day to day support and care to people on the autistic spectrum and to provide an opportunity to build on your existing knowledge of Autistic Spectrum Disorder and to use this knowledge to identify practical strategies that can be used when supporting individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (2023) made 107 recommendations to the Government to address child sexual exploitation and abuse. The Governments response to these recommendations was published May 2023 and this training reflects the potential impact for us all.
The Government’s 'Tackling child sexual abuse strategy' (Feb 2021) calls for the need for everyone to play their part, 'across every part of Government, across all agencies, all sectors, charities, communities, technology companies and society more widely'.

Child criminal exploitation is not defined in law, though the government’s Serious Violence Strategy (2018) defines it as occurring where an individual or group takes advantage of an imbalance of power to coerce, control, manipulate or deceive a child or young person under the age of 18 into any criminal activity:
• in exchange for something the victim needs or wants
• for the financial or other advantage of the perpetrator or facilitator
• through violence or the threat of violence
The most common form of child criminal exploitation is ‘County lines”.
County lines is defined by the Government’s Serious Violence Strategy (2018) as
“…a term used to describe gangs and organised criminal networks involved in exporting illegal drugs into one or more importing areas (within the UK), using dedicated mobile phone lines or other form of ‘deal line’. They are likely to exploit children and vulnerable adults to move (and store) the drugs and money and they will often use coercion, intimidation, violence (including sexual violence) or weapons.”
There are more than 2,000 County lines organised criminal gangs across England and Wales and gang members can give some children and young people a false sense of belonging, safety, and security, filling a gap that exists in their lives.
