Children’s MARS Training

North Lincolnshire Children’s MARS Board seeks to support individuals in keeping up to date with their knowledge and skills and also in the acquisition of further skills and expertise through the provision of training and in supporting development opportunities. The training provided by the Children’s MARS Board supports practitioners in maintaining and developing their core skills for working and engaging with children, young people and their families.

As part of the development opportunities provided by the board it runs information sessions, practice forums, locality days and conferences; which promote putting theory into practice, developing expertise and will enhance confidence in protecting children and young people. Publications that support learning and that may be of interest are highlighted in the awareness level training section.

There will be an expectation for employers to ensure staff complete the feedback survey sent to all attendees of Children’s MARS Board courses in relation to the effectiveness of training in relation to practice. Upon completion of the feedback survey, delegates will receive certification from the Children’s MARS Board.
