“We will listen to the views of children and young people and their families, and work together to ensure they feel safe and North Yorkshire is a happy place to live.”
In accordance with Working Together (2015) the NYSCB maintains a Learning and Improvement Framework. To support or vision and the Learning and Improvement Framework we aim to increase staff morale and confidence, enabling good practice. A key to enabling this is to provide high quality training to staff working with children and young people.
The way in which the NYSCB delivers its training is changing. As of 1 April 2017 any non-North Yorkshire County Council professional who has accessed training through the Learning Zone will no longer be able to use this service. Professionals are advised to access their training history and obtain copies of any NYSCB courses certificates before that date.
From 1 April 2017, the NYSCB will be moving to a new Learning platform delivered by the Virtual College. With this a suite of new e-learning courses will be available covering a variety of subjects. NYSCB e-learning courses are available to everyone. Training courses are free to professionals working in the public sector, as well as all schools (maintained, independent, academies and free). Private sector workers and anyone working with children and young people outside of North Yorkshire can also access training for a small fee per course. Information regarding our charging polices is available from:
