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.

Mind Your Language! – NWG Network

The language we use as professionals can have a significant, and potentially lifelong, impact on victims of exploitation and their families. A victim of exploitation is never to blame for the abuse they have lived through, yet we live in times where victims are blamed.

The “Mind Your Language: Exploitation and Victim Blaming” training provides an overview of theories of victim-blaming and gives examples of how we may see and hear victim-blaming within our working environments. The course enables a discussion on victim-blaming language and terminology along with exploring how we dehumanise young people through the language we use. The aim of the course is to explore our practice to ensure we accurately and sensitively record and report of victim experiences.

The webinar is proving very popular and one that is provoking lots of practitioners to reflect and consider their language as it is not all about victim blaming language but about our everyday terminology and language whether written or spoken. 

Available dates:

  • Thursday 18 February 2021 – 10am to 12pm – MS Teams
  • Tuesday 23 March 2021 – 1pm to 3pm – MS Teams
