Seven Minute Briefings
Welcome to 7-minute briefings!
Due to the increasing pressures on services, we understand that it can be difficult to release staff to attend training. In order to encourage continuous learning and maintain a skilled workforce, Thurrock LSCP have introduced 7-minute briefings as a quick and simple way to share learning on a range of safeguarding topics.
7-minute briefings are based on a technique borrowed from the FBI. In a world of increasing pressures and demands on time, it can be hard to find the time for learning and development. Learning from 7-minute briefings is manageable in most services, and learning is more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.
Clearly such short briefings will not have all the answers, but it is hoped that they will act as a catalyst to help teams and their managers to discuss and reflect on their practice and systems.
We would like to encourage all agencies to record or evidence how they have used these 7-minute briefings on the Action Plan Template, which we will seek to gain copies of for the purposes of Thurrock LSCP's quality assurance audits.
