To provide effective and efficient co-ordination of resources and support for the Training team and the learners across all SafeLives’ training programmes.
SafeLives’ Training team develops the knowledge and skills of professionals responding to victims and survivors of domestic abuse, whether adults, young people or children. The programme includes sector- leading accredited training - foundation and expert courses - for independent domestic violence advisors (Idvas) and independent domestic abuse advocates in Scotland (Idaas), independent sexual violence advisors (Isvas), domestic violence and abuse outreach workers, and other frontline workers who come into contact with people experiencing domestic abuse.
SafeLives also delivers Domestic Abuse Matters (DA Matters), a change programme for police officers and staff which we deliver on behalf of the national College of Policing. SafeLives has recently been appointed to deliver DA Matters in Scotland which will train 14,000 Police Scotland officers in identifying controlling behaviours to support the introduction of the new Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Act.
SafeLives is very proud of its reputation for high quality training programmes, and your role in maintaining our standards and delivering for learners will be vital. The successful post holder will support a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. You will get an insight into all the workings of a charity which is really well regarded and innovative, and will support colleagues and learners to fulfil our values; rigorous, human and brave.
The Training Coordinator will support direct training activities across all SafeLives’ training programmes, but will specialise in the Idva training programme.
SafeLives is a creative, practical charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse. Since 2005 we have constantly looked to evidence, the voice of survivors and practical expertise from across the UK to improve the way domestic abuse is prevented, identified and addressed.
As well as being known for incubating new research and practical interventions to address the risk of domestic abuse, SafeLives has the ability and motivation to replicate and scale good practice so that victims, survivors and their children all over the UK can benefit. Last year, SafeLives’ interventions helped over 60,000 adults increase their safety, and many more children.
We haven’t yet gone far enough. Radical change is still needed to not just reduce the impact of domestic abuse, but also reduce the prevalence of the problem so that fewer individuals and families are touched by it in the first place.
