More advanced BMC Child Protection training

If there isn't a BMC safeguarding or child protection workshop available that you can attend there may, however, be a course that you can attend run by UK Coaching.  It is perfectly acceptable to attend one of their workshops as it contains the same information as a BMC course and the attendance certificates are identical. Check out UK Coaching courses here
