There are a range of training opportunities available to staff and volunteers working with children and young people in Wandsworth, as well for those working with adults who are parents or caring for children. Staff can apply for training via the Wandsworth Training and Professional Development Online (TPD Online) website. There are different training courses which you will find useful depending on your role and responsibility.

To view the training offer, please go to the website: Wandsworth TPD Online

New users will need to register on the site to access the training courses.

The courses on offer are categorised according to the relevance to the various organisations that work with children and young people in Wandsworth. There are basic awareness courses as well as more advanced training. Each course is described in detail on TPD Online and states which staff will find the training relevant. However, all applicants should discuss and agree with their supervisor or manager the courses they wish to attend before requesting a place. Managers or supervisors, known as TPD Leads on TPD Online, will be asked to approve applications.

The Wandsworth Safeguarding Children Board is committed to improving practice in the children and young people's workforce and achieving better outcomes for children and young people through training and development.  It is important to measure the impact of training; therefore all those who participate in training will be expected to give feed back on how useful they found the course they attended and how much difference it has made to how well they do their job.
