Mandy Parry Training produces a range of training that is designed to meet the needs of the children’s workforce. We offer a range of Child Protection and Safeguarding training (via both open courses and in-house delivery) that is increasingly well regarded by settings in Bristol and across the South West.
In addition, our experience makes us well placed to offer a full spectrum of sexual health training, including domestic violence, abortion and supporting parents to talk to their children about sex and relationships. Our broad experience of training within different agencies means that we can also offer settings in such diverse subjects as team building, group facilitation and supervision. We can also plan bespoke training on request.

KBSP Advises the Following Standards When Commissioning Safeguarding & Child Protection Training:
|Commissioning standard||Mandy Parry Training|
|Identify evidence that the training provider meets the minimum training standards. This could be by asking questions, checking the accuracy of course content by using our website (www.bristolsafeguarding.org/children) or South West Child Protection Procedures (https://www.proceduresonline.com/swcpp/), checking references, asking to see evidence of experience/qualifications/specialist knowledge or identifying their feedback process, including actions, regarding quality of training provision.||MPT meets all the BSCB minimum training standards (see above). Please do speak to us by asking questions, trainer knowledge and experience, feedback process and the quality of our training. Check the accuracy of our course content which we update before every course we deliver. Our MPT website has an intensive list of testimonials from a wide range of organisations who have already commissioned training with us: http://mandyparrytraining.co.uk/testimonials/|
|Ensure that either the training provider will measure impact (and report to you), or arrange for an internal process that robustly tests what difference the training has made to staff practice in the short, and longer, term.||MPT will discuss with you the best way to measure impact, we are happy to work with you to supply a bespoke service for your setting that work for you.|
|If arranging foundation/induction training for staff, compare the course content to the recommended learning outcomes, and ensure that any course is adapted to reflect your organisation’s policy and practice.||On booking, MPT will discuss the learning outcomes for your specific setting, adapting them to address your particular training needs. A week before the training takes place, MPT will send you the training presentation and will make amendments as requested.|
|If you are not satisfied with the training, provide accurate, specific feedback to the training provider that explains how it fell short of the minimum training standards.||MPT is always happy to receive constructive criticism to ensure that the training we provide is the best possible quality. As a freelance training provider, our reputation and the service we provide is of the utmost importance to us.|
