7 minute briefings

What are 7-Minute Briefings?

Children\'s training7-minute briefs in Warrington provide information in a concise way to aid learning.  They include information on;

  • Learning from Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews (CSPR’s)
  • Learning from Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs)
  • Learning from Audits
  • Learning from Table top reviews
  • New policies, procedure or guidance
  • A spotlight on key issues as a reminder for practice

Why 7 minutes?

7-Minute Briefings are based on research which suggests that seven minutes is an ideal time span in which to concentrate and learn.  Learning for 7 minutes is manageable in most services and often more memorable as it is necessarily brief.

Why not discuss one in supervision or your next team meeting?

If you have suggestions for future briefings, please email Warrington Safeguarding Partnerships safeguardingpartnerships@warrington.gov.uk
