Inter-Agency Training: A Practical Handbook is suitable for both beginning and more experienced training professionals, including supervisors and managers in their inter-agency work, as well as staff, volunteers, and anyone considering employing an inter-agency trainer. The handbook brings together guidance and tools to assist in both self-development and the training of professionals involved in any inter-agency context, such as safeguarding adults, child protection, youth work, youth offending, adult mental health, adult offending, and others. Using the example of Local Safeguarding Children's Boards in the UK - yet adaptable for different circumstances and disciplines - the book ensures that high quality inter-agency training takes place and enhances inter-agency communication and cooperation. Practical in focus, and extensively tried and tested, it offers: tools, exercises, and checklists for use at each stage of the training cycle - from planning to evaluation * strategies for when obstacles are encountered * the opportunity to appraise, affirm, and develop trainers' skills and knowledge * inspiration to try something new and different. The book will empower workers and help develop resilience in inter-agency work.
