Running Ahead™

SALT are pleased to introduce the U.K’s first Level 3 Qualification, carefully designed for Safeguarding Interview Practitioners (SIP’s) who meet directly with Children that run away or go missing from home or care.

NOCN Level 3 Award in ‘Undertaking Independent Missing Return Interviews for Children’.

The Level 3 Award in ‘Undertaking Independent Missing Return Interviews for Children’ has been carefully researched, written and developed by Shropshire Academy and Learning Trust, in conjunction with NOCN, a leading provider of high quality qualifications, apprenticeships and assessments.

This evidence-based and carefully designed qualification aims to provide further safeguards and proactive support to children who find themselves vulnerable and at risk of harm, further harm and exploitation, whilst validating and quality assuring practitioner competence for those undertaking Independent Missing Return Interviews.

This qualification is nationally accredited and Ofqual regulated, providing reliable and competency-based evidence, which demonstrates the knowledge and skills that learners have been assessed against, before final assessment, qualification and competence award.

This NOCN accredited training programme is fully aligned to the Department for Education’s Statutory Guidance (2014) Guidance states that interviews should be carried out by someone who is ‘trained to carry out these interviews and is able to follow-up any actions that emerge’.

For interviewers who meet directly with Children who Run Away or go Missing from Home or Care, this carefully devised and research-infomed programme is delivered through the Shropshire Academy and Learning Trust’s ‘Missing Return Interview Framework’: Running Ahead™
