The East Ayrshire Child Protection Committee (EACPC) is committed to raising basic awareness and understanding of child protection and promoting child safety, health and wellbeing. 

We have developed a training framework, a range of training opportunities and downloadable guidance to help with learning and development.

Training framework

Along with the Adult Protection Committee, the Alcohol and Drugs Partnership, ChooseLife, the Violence Against Women Partnership and MAPPA we have developed a Protecting People training framework. The framework gives example training pathways as a guide to help people and managers work out which levels of training would be recommended or suitable.
