Helen Hogan – Consultant/Trainer specialising in the development of bespoke training courses for all school personnel working in the safeguarding arena. I have worked for Pam Gartland in PG: Safeguarding First LTD since 2014. I have responsibility within the business for advice and guidance, training facilitation and delivery, professional supervision and supporting schools in self-assessment of their safeguarding arrangements. I am a keen development officer and work within the company to drive forward the changes in safeguarding in to the hearts of schools, by organising and co-ordinating our termly events for schools designated safeguarding leads, writing our newsletter, developing the termly action plan and creating guidance documents/policies to support schools in their safeguarding practice.
From 2010-2014 I worked as an Education Safeguarding Advisor for a Local Authority Education Safeguarding Team with responsibilities for supporting schools in all safeguarding matters and representing them on the Local Safeguarding Children Board in many of the sub groups. During this time I delivered multi-agency training for several statutory and voluntary agencies on behalf of the LSCB and have continued that partnership whilst working for PG:Safeguarding First Ltd.
I am both a Qualified Teacher and Social Worker. From 2006-2010 I worked as a Frontline Social Worker and Principal Social Worker in Child Protection in a nearby Local Authority, where I had case responsibility and supervision of staff. I have a passion and enthusiasm for safeguarding children through good multi agency working that encourages and develops positive outcomes for all children.
