Other Training

There is a whole host of additional Child Protection training available within SKIP. 

This includes at events such as:

  • Big Weekends

Ask your branch!

If you are a project volunteer, it is really important that you get branch specific child protection training for the country you’re going to. 


If you have any concerns that you haven’t recieved this or you are a branch member and you’re not sure how to deliver this training please email anna.mcloughlin@skipkids.org.uk
