Terms & Conditions

Bookings close 5 working days before the start of the course, however we do sometimes get late cancellations. Please contact the office directly to enquire about places after this date. Applicants should ensure they follow their agency procedures for booking training.

Refreshments Tea, coffee, and snacks are available from vending machines in Galley Hill reception area (drinks are 30p/cup). For those training events where there is a charge, refreshments will be provided at appropriate times during the session.  Please note, tea and coffee will not be provided on free-of-charge events. In order to keep costs down and ensure that we optimise on training opportunities available, lunch will not be provided unless otherwise explicity stated on the event booking page. There is a local shop within walking distance or a mobile sandwich service is available at Galley Hill. 

Certificates will only be issued for attendance of the full course. Certificates will only be released on completion of an evaluation form. Delegates should ensure they can attend the whole session and after the training should login to their account to complete the online evaluation and then be able to download their certificate of attendance. 

Late arrivals-Participants turning up late for training events may be turned away, at the discretion of the trainer. Delegates who are denied entry by the training due to their late arrival will still be charged the full cost of the training event.  

Data Protection-We are required to inform individuals about the information we hold about them. MKSB records names, roles and contact details on a computerised database for the purposes of distributing the training brochure and to support the training records held by agencies. In addition, course evaluations and application details are held on an electronic database. 

Attendance and non-attendance information is recorded and reported to the MK Safeguarding Board. 

Training Charges - In order to continue to provide safeguarding training, the Milton Keynes Safeguarding Board (MKSB) has agreed to introduce a charging policy for attendance at training events from 1 April 2017. The policy sets out the charges for training offered by the MKSB, including non-attendance charges, and can be accessed here.

Prior to booking on to a training event, applicants are responsible for ensuring that they are aware of the charging and cancellation policy. Applicants must always follow their own agency processes when booking on to training events and are responsible for ensuring that line manager approval has been obtained.

Course Cancellations - The MKSB continues to operate a strict policy for non-attendance at training events. All course cancellations must be made more than 5 working days prior to an event via the event-booking system. Cancellations less than 5 working days before an event must be made via email to mkscb.training@Milton-keynes.gov.uk. Please note that charges will apply for late cancellations in accordance with the cancellation policy. In cases where a delegate cannot attend, a replacement can be sent. However, this must be marked clearly on the course register on the day.
