Protecting people through learning and development

Protecting People covers child protection, adult support and protection, violence against women, substance use, public protection and suicide prevention.

The safety and protection of children and young people in Perth and Kinross is everyone's responsibility and the Child Protection Committee (CPC) recognise the importance of providing high quality learning and development opportunities to support the multi-agency workforce to feel confident and competent when faced with a concern about a child or young person's wellbeing and / or protection.

In accordance with the latest guidance we are putting in place measures to slow the spread of COVID-19. Perth and Kinross Council is postponing all training sessions until further notice. 

Perth and Kinross CPC continue to share available learning and development opportunities and resources with our multi-agency partners.


Perth and Kinross Council has developed three essential protecting people modules e-learning modules (Child Protection, Adult Support & Protection and GIRFEC) which are available free to all practitioners, managers, supervisors, carers and volunteers from all agencies and services (public, private and third sectors) in Perth and Kinross. The modules take around 20 minutes each to complete.
