Aberdeenshire Council Child Protection Training

Aberdeenshire Council Child Protection Training from Aberlour Futures for the early learning and childcare workforce can be booked through the ALDO learning portal.

We are commissioned by Aberdeenshire Council to provide child protection training for all staff working with children and young people and their families.

Everyone who has contact with children and their families has a part to play in ensuring children and young people are safe and that you are confident in your practice to respond to any concern you may have.   The courses are designed at 3 levels:

  • Introduction to Child Protection
  • Child Protection Refresher - Developing Your Knowledge
  • Managers & Designated Child Protection Officer Training
