Code: LSC649 ESSCP : Working with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities - Safeguarding, Risk Planning and Intervention (Virtual)

The term Gypsy, Roma and Traveller is a collective term used to describe a wide variety of cultural and ethnic groups. There are many ways in which ethnicity may be established: these include language, nomadic way of life, and crucially, self-identification. Defining a person as a Gypsy, Roma or Traveller is a matter of self-ascription and does not exclude those who are living in houses. Ethnic identity is not lost when members of the communities settle, but it continues and adapts to the new circumstances.

The training will be delivered by trainers from the Gypsy,Roma and Traveller Teaching and Learning Provision, Children's Services Single Point of Advice and Youth Support Teams.

This FREE live, interactive training will be delivered via Microsoft Teams. Once you have successfully booked a place on this event, you will receive a separate invite with a link to the Microsoft Teams meeting, which will be the platform for this event.

Important note: It is essential that you have completed the Safeguarding Children eLearning and the pre-course learning, prior to coming on this course (see additional information under full details), or you may be turned away.
