Operation Encompass

Are you a police force wanting to be part of Operation Encompass to share additional child vulnerabilities with schools, or a Key Adult wanting to update your details?

Online Key Adult Training

Online Key Adult Training

Operation Encompass has a dedicated FREE online Key Adult training package which is hosted by Virtual College.

This free training is available to all schools and education settings including early years’ settings and Health Visiting. The training updates staff members' knowledge of domestic abuse, children as victims of domestic abuse, how Operation Encompass works in principle and how staff can support children experiencing domestic abuse. There is also a module about children with other vulnerabilities and children who are Missing from Home or Care. 

This training will also assist you in developing the skills and knowledge to fully embed Operation Encompass in your school or education setting.

ALL DSLs and their deputies should undertake this online training and many police forces will not share information with the DSL until the training has been completed.

Once you have completed the training, please download your certificate and contact with the details of your school and the police force that your school is in. Operation Encompass will then forward your details to your local force who will ensure that you are then part of Operation Encompass and have notifications shared with you.
